College is a duplicitous creature, both in the fabric and 
perception of its constitution. Asking 1,000 entering students 
their ideas of 'what college is all about" will elicit two 
predictable modes of thought. 

On one side are the dedicated pursuers of academic 
scholarship, some having direction, others not, but both 
eager for educational grooming and achievement leading to 
an end result of professional success and security. 

On the other, excited social novices gather, finally 
having freed themselves, perhaps for the first time, from the 
watchful eyes of parental authority, eager to partake of 
" college stuff " : going to parties, "optional homework" and 
laughing in the face of curfew. 

As these words leave the mouths of these fledgling 
philosophers, the experienced college journeyman will smile, 
for he or she already knows precisely what the other shall in 
time discover. The college experience is indeed composed of 
these two starkly contrasting components, but they are not 
separate. They are intertwined into an unlikely, but 
necessary, prearranged marriage, a juxtaposition of 
developing scholastic thought and social practice. 

Webster's defines juxtaposition as "placed side-by-side, 
an instance of two or more objects in an ideal relationship." 



r y Juxtaposition 




^ For our purposes, we define it as the 
inescapable meshing of personal and 
academic growth as the framework 
of collegiate life. 

From the high school recluse 
finding new awareness with the 
enthusiastic prodding of Greek 
life, to an English major 
discovering a new passion 
for rat dissection, univer- 
sity life is a haven where 
can examine at leisure the 
multitude of things one has 
been told in an effort to 
discover personal truth. 
The 1997 Potpourri 
elcomes you to smile at 
he remembrance of 
eplaceable lessons learned. 
at the anticipation of the 
many to come. We welcome von 
) our version of Juxtaposition, the 
:ence of the college experience.

// twisted and curled itself about the "year between the 
Marches." 

It showed itself in a presidential changing-of- 
the-guard, as Dr. Randall Webb was named successor 
to Dr. Robert Alost, having been knighted with the 
task of leading Northwestern into the future. 

Students took advantage of it, as they escaped 
highway mortality by utilizing the new running path 
on the outskirts of campus. 

The Journalism Department glimpsed it, as they 
repared to reap the rewards of accreditation after 
tortuous hours spent in preparation of its coming. 
The spirit that is Vic the Demon sensed it, as 
our beloved mascot went through a costume 
change, intent on continuing a proud tradition 
with an untested personage. 

It erupted in dissension, when, 
in-process of renovation, Russell Hall was 
reappropriated from the Louisiana Scholars ' 
College to the Business Department. 
Blossoming into a new social outlet, it manifested as 
Sigma Nu and Alpha Omicron Pi planted and extended their roots on 
Northwestern soil. 

It quietly and unshakably entrenched itself caning its initials 
and sinking its fingers into every niche of student life. 

Some students questioned the allocation of funds to campus 
beautification when issues such as lack of campus parking 
inted in a sun of collective disenchantment. 
Dormitories became mausoleums as the 
weekends rolled around, further estab- 
lishing Northwestern s reputation as a 
suitcase college." 

The bleary-eyed stumbled into eight 
clock classes after a robust Thursday night 
escape at a favorite local hang-out. 

The magnolias burst open in a spray of 
fragrance, and incoming freshmen smelted their 
first wisps of college freedom. 

It" was, in essence, a subtle merging of black 

ind white waters, tides of fresh and tides of salt, 

virling, a brackish phantom, around the bustling 

ankles of the Northwestern populace. It tied the 

(rings of a student dancing madly on the eve of an 

PJorganic chemistry exam to the strings of a student 
dancing madly on the floor of a cramped bar. did this 
w imperceptible juxtaposition. 

It wlis, and remains, an unorthodox marriage of parties

Homecoming 








Making That Trip Home... 

The Demons' 38-21 win over Sam Houston State was 
the highlight of the 1 12th Homecoming festivities held Oct. 15- 
19, clearly defining the Student Activities Board's theme "Let's 
Wrap This Thing Up" as they shipped the Bearkats back to 
Texas with the loss. 

Student homecoming activities began Monday with a 
series of events sponsored by the SAB. A lip sync contest was 
held in the Alley after Chad Watson was selected as Mr. 
Homecoming Hunnie. Tuesday's "twisted" events included the 
showing of the movie Twister, playing the Twister board game 
and competing in a twist dance contest. An M-4 motion simu- 
lator, which gave participants the feel of flying a fighter jet, 
was located in front of the Union Wednesday. 

The annual Homecoming Parade took place Thursday at 
6 p.m. with the route starting at Prather Coliseum and ending 
on the downtown riverbank. A pep rally was held after the 
parade with performances by the Demon Dazzlers and the 
Purple Pizazz Pompon line. 

With the game nearing, students' car windows were 
painted in front of the Union Friday to show support. A pre-pep 
rally party was held in the Alley from 7-9:30 p.m. followed by 
a pep rally at Turpin Stadium. 

Alumni activities began Oct. 18 with the Class of 1946 
as the special guests of all events. According to Elise James, 
director of alumni development. Homecoming is a special time 
for alumni who "have done so much for the university over the 
years." 

"Homecoming is a very important event for all mem- 
bers of the Northwestern family," James said. 

The annual Alumni Golf Tournament took place Friday. 
Oct. 18 at the Robert Wilson, Sr. Recreational Complex. A 
jambalaya dinner was served at the complex that night with 
entertainment provided. 

Saturday morning the 4 N' Club inductions took place in 
the Purple and White Room of the Athletic Field house. 
Inductees included football legend Gary Reasons, basketball 
and track star Frank Lampkin and women's sports pioneer Lou 
Lewis Baxter. 

In addition, inductees to the Long Purple Line and 
recipients of the Outstanding Teacher Award were honored at 
the Alumni Luncheon at noon. Long Purple Line inductees 
included Dr. Edward C. Greco. Bobb) Harling and Theodore 
H. Roberts. The Outstanding Teacher Awards went to Dr. ( rarj 
White, math and science, and to Dr. Bill Bryant, creative and 
performing arts. 

Homecoming activities culminated with the 2 p.m. 
game where Homecoming Queen Kim Parker and her court 
were presented during half-time. According to Parker, her 
selection to the court was an honor. "It's realK an overwhelm- 
ing experience," Parker said.

Taming of the Shrew 



rheater Performs Taming of the Shrew 

Northwestern 's Department of Creative and Performing Arts opened its fall theatrical season with William 
hakespeare's classic farce Taming of the Shrew. 

This tale of the battle of the sexes boasts a man's intent on "taming" a strong-willed woman into a subservient wife, 
'he show ran Oct. 8-12, including morning shows as part of the outreach program to other schools in the area. 

Dr. Jack Wann, artistic director, decided to use A. A. Fredericks Auditorium, but instead of using the usual seating, he 
laced chairs on the stage creating a smaller production area and allowed the cast to interact with the audience. Wann felt by 
oing this the feeling of the Elizabethan theater could be replicated. In those times, the audience sat on the same level as the 
ctors who were then free to roam about intermingling with the audience. 

According to Wann, the scenes did not just happen on the stage but "extended into the audience" creating an intimate 
^lationship between cast and spectators. 

"The best part for me was intermingling with the audience," Jennifer Steiner said. "It brought so much more to the 
tiow." 

Wann also changed the setting from Elizabethan time to the 1850's in a lumberjack community. "You have to address 
le people of the decade," Wann said. "You must go deeper into the play to the 'inner kernal,' to what the play is really 
bout." 

Wann felt that this change captured the robust society present in the Elizabethan times, yet it provided an atmosphere 
'here Katherine and Petruchio, the main characters, could be portrayed as equals. 

"It [setting change] was really interesting," Heather Child said. "It gave it [the show] a new twist." 
According to Dallas Bird, the set allowed for more characterization. "We were able to more with our roles," Bird 
aid. 

The actors enjoyed themselves putting on the production. P. J. Davis, who played Katherine the "shrew" laughingly 
aid, "I just like to be able to throw things and have fits and be able to get away with it." 

After the students became comfortable with Shakespeare, 
they really had a good time, Wann said. 

"Shakespeare is really easy to understand once you can 
act it out," Kelly Songy said. 

Patrick Thomassie agreed. "Shakespeare is not as intimi- 
dating now." 
The cast commented on the feeling of togetherness in the 
show. As a whole, they felt this allowed them the ability to 
successfully recreate the play, even with the changes. 
"The theaters like an extended family," April Gentry said. 
Aimee' Lasseigne agreed. "The cast was really close. I 
(haven't felt this family-oriented before." 

The cast rehearsed diligently for four weeks every day 
except Saturday, and twice on Sunday. "Preparation is the 
key in any role whether it be Shakespeare or contempo- 
rary," Tony Arieux said.

"oik Festival Presents "Family 
heritage and Tradition" 




[Terry Huval, fiddler and band leader for 
the cajun band of "Jambalaya," performs 
at the '96 festival celebration. 



A major production of Northwestern 's Folklife Center 
is the Natchitoches-NSU Folk Festival, which is held annually 
on the third weekend of July in Prather Coliseum. 
This year's theme was "Family Heritage and 

Tradition." The festival events revolved around 
this theme with exhibits, information and dis- 
cussions on genealogy and family heritage. 
There was also a "Kidsfest" area where fami- 
lies participated in theme-related activities. 

The festival began Thursday afternoon 
with a gumbo cook-off. Each cook was 
required to make two gallons of either seafood 
or poultry gumbo. Many people were there to 
get a taste of this year's selections. Certificates 
were awarded to the winners. 

The festival is a four-time winner of the 
prestigious "Top 20 Events in the Southeast" 
award given by the Southeast Tourism Society, 
which covers events held in nine Southeastern 
[■states. According to Madelyn Boudreaux, grad- 
i "luate student in the Folklife Center, all of the 
m\ lcraft and food vendors and musical presenta- 
Btjtions were featured in the festival by invitation 

Konly 
^V "Each year the festival provides tradi- 

tional Louisiana foods, crafts and music," Dr. 
Don Hatley, Louisiana Folklife director, said. 

"In Louisiana, people enjoy celebrating 
ethnicity and diversity of the cultures," Joe 
Parrie, former president of the Native 
American Student Association, said. 

Among the 75 traditional craft booths 
were crafts like basket weaving, gourd design- 
ing, pottery sculpting and chair making. Food 
choices ranged from red beans and rice, craw- 
fish pies and mustard greens with corn bread 
to boudin balls and Cajun goulash. 

This year's music presentations includ- 
ed swing fiddler Johnny Gimbal and 
Louisiana's Swamp Fiddler Hadley Castille. 
"They're both great performers and very grateful to 
their audiences," Mary Jane Day, secretary of the festival, 
said. "Gimbal signed autographs; the audience ate it up. 
Seeing the music and the crafts people... all aspects arc 
t errific."

Purple Pizazz Pumps Up The Fans 





Throughout the year, the Demons and their fans 
been fired up by the Purple Pizazz pompon line. 

The group consisted of 40 members who per- 
formed at the pep rallies and all home football and bas- 
ketball games. The pompon line was led by captain 
Jennifer Aby and co-captains, Tiffany Owens and Amy 
Broussard. 

The line had different activities throughout the 
year. This year the line had exchanges with several frater- 
nities. They also had pompon line penpals among the 
members where they dressed up in costumes to find out 
who their penpals were. 

According to the line's fund raising coordinator, 
Karen Schexnaydre, the line held a raffle for 100 lottery 
tickets to be given away. Another raffle was held for girls 
from kindergarten to eighth grade to cheer with the line 
at a game. 

The pompon line was not all fun and games, 
though; it was a lot of hard work. The line had practice 
four days a week and also exercised every day for at least 
30 minutes. 

"It's a lot of hard work, but I enjoy promoting 
team spirit," Emily Tracy, first-year member, said. "It 
gives me something to do, and I love to dance." 

Pompon line tryouts are held every April. During 
the try-outs the girls must demonstrate dancing and 
cheering skills. 

"For try-outs we have to be able to do toe-touch- 
es, splits, kicks, leaps, a cheer and a dance," Schexnaydre 
said. "It has been a great experience for me for the past 
three years."

Band prepares early for 
football season 

Long before the majority of students began to arrive in Natchitoches last fall, echoes of 
fanfare and shouts signaled the return of the "Spirit of Northwestern" Marching Band. 

On Aug. 19, the bands drum majors, section leaders, drum line and flag corps arrived at 
Northwestern to start the 1996 band camp. New members arrived on Aug. 22 and the returning 
members arrived on Aug. 23. The band had over 280 members. They practiced throughout the 
day from the time they arrived through Aug. 27. Practice yielded a great amount of work 
accomplished by the band members. 

"This band has the potential to be the best band ever at NSU," Bill Brent, band director 
and director of the Department of Creative and Performing Arts, said. 

The start of the fall semester in no way slowed down the progress made by the band. The 
band immediately began its Monday, Wednesday and Friday practices. The band had the pre- 
game routine and an entire half-time show to learn with less than two weeks until its first per- 
formance. 

The hard work was evident during the Sept. 7 performance during the Southern football 
game, where the "Spirit of Northwestern" was splitting ears and stunning audiences with its 
"Mystery Field Show." The show consisted of Goldfinger and TV. Mystery Medley, containing 
Mission Impossible, Dragnet, Old Ironsides, Perry Mason and Hawaii 5-0. 

The next field show was unveiled at the game against East Texas State on Sept. 21. This 
new show consisted of Les Miserables, A Chorus Line, City of Angels and The Phantom of the 
Opera. 

Though the field shows were impressive, the music played by the band in the stands also 
turned a few heads. Along with the standard music, such as 2001, Hey Baby, Macarena Fanfare 
and The NSU Fight Song, the band played new songs, such as the French National Defile 
March , His Honor, a short version of the popular craze Macarena and many others. 

As a tribute to the history of the Northwestern band program, this year's pre-game show 
began differently. The band came onto the field playing The Louisiana Normal School Fight 
Song, which stopped and suddenly became the present NSU Fight Song. The fight song was fol- 
lowed by March Grandioso, which formed the famous Northwestern "N." The band played the 
Star-Spangled Banner and the Northwestern Alma Mater. Finally, the marching band left the 
field with the present-day NSU Fight Song. 

This year, the band was under the direction of Cole LeMay, Roderick Saunders and 
Chris Whorton, returning to the podium as head drum major. "This band is far better than the 
bands of the past," Whorton said. 

"There's nothing like getting on the podium on a crisp autumn evening, standing in front 
of thousands of spectators," Whorton said. "I tweet the whistle four times, and a massive wall of 
sound slams through me, rushing toward the crowd behind me. I get goose bumps at moments 
like these." 

"Being in this band is any musician's dream come true," Melissa Robertson said. "The 
discipline is tremendous and a genuine love of music is always evident." 

"The band just keeps getting better and better," Chris Conway said. "The shows are real- 
ly exciting and it's always great to give the crowd a thrill." 

"This band is not only a performing group, but also a family," Jon Marsiglia said. 

"When I graduate, I will look back not only on the performances, but also the many 
friends I have made and the many memories that I will cherish forever," Marsiglia said.

Bandsmen March with Drum and 
Bugle Corps' Phantom Regiment 

For the past three summers, sleeping on gymnasium floors and working 1 2 to 15 hours a day were common practice 
for two members of "The Spirit of Northwestern" marching band. 

Don Hardin and Roderic Saunders traveled over 15,000 miles by bus as members of Drum Corps International, a 
non-profit organization that used drums and bugles to create a show of music and marching. 

"I watched DCI finals as a kid and later joined the band," Hardin said. "It is just something that has always interest- 
ed me, so I made connections with other people who had been members of DCI to see how I could get involved." 

In 1993, Hardin began performing with the Phantom Regiment of Rockford, 111., which was comprised of 128 musi- 
cians from around the country. 

"We work for two weeks from 7 a.m. until 10 or 1 1 at night putting together the show, learning drills and how to put 
music with it," Hardin said of Rockford. "Then we go on tour, where we perform six shows a week." 

In the three years Hardin participated in DCI, the tour took him through the states of Indiana, Wisconsin, Illinois and 
Michigan. 

In the summer of 1996, the Phantom Regiment tied for first in the DCI finals and captured Best Horn Line Award 
and Best General Effect Award. 

"It is a lot of hard work, but the fun outweighs that. It has taught me that if you want anything in life, you have to 
work for it," Hardin said. "It has also taught me discipline and opened my eyes to different music and marching styles." 

Saunders, an alumni member of the Phantom Regiment, also remembered those championship summers. 

He was a member of the award-winning 1994 Phantom Regiment when it placed third in the nation. 

In 1995, the regiment placed fifth, and Saunders won a personal award for best drum major. 

Saunders' age made him ineligible to march in 1996. As 
a result, he returned to Rockford as a tour guide. 

"I just wanted to make sure the members were taken 
care of," Saunders said. 

Saunders' duties as a tour guide included making sure 
the members were housed, fed properly and that there were 
practice fields available on the tour stops. 

"My role as tour director taught me so much about 
management. You have to work as a team to make it flow," 
Saunders said. 

According to Saunders, the Phantom Regiment was 
like a family to him, looking at the members as brothers 
and sisters. It was those brothers and sisters, many from 
different cultures, who brought Saunders to the realization 
that DCI was not all about marching and playing, but 
about being human and accepting all types of people for 
who they were. 

Saunders planned to further his career in music 
by obtaining his master's in conducting and going on to 
be a symphony conductor. However, the idea of one day 
becoming a Corps director with the Phantom Regiment 
did not sound half bad, either.

Danceline Dazzles On 
Field and Stage 

The Demon Dazzlers provided entertainment to many throughout the 
year at football games, pep rallies and basketball games. 

The danceline also performed in the Homecoming parade, Christmas 
Festival parade, Senior Day and Spirit Day. In the spring semester, they 
danced in the Lady of the Bracelet Pageant and in the Department of 
Creative and Performing Arts' production of West Side Story. 

Captain Heather Dillon and co-captain Kelli Rivere led the 12-mem- 
ber danceline through physical fitness, practice and performance. The 
Dazzlers practiced six days a week in the fall and three hours a week in the 
spring. The Dazzlers also ran three miles a week. 

Not only did they have to prepare their own dances, but in the fall, 
they had to learn and perfect marching sequences with the band. 

According to Dillon, the danceline spent a lot of time practicing, but 
the hard work and dedication paid off in the end. "They [the Dazzlers] put a 
110 percent into all that they do," Dillon said. "Hard work makes a good 
line, and it shows when we perform." 

Members of the line included: Monica Adams, Kymberlie Anthony, 
Amy Cattan, Sonia Chavez, Lindsay Hand, Courtney Lacour, Blythe 
Leinenweber, Jamie McElroy, Maria Sawrie and Carrie Todd.

Catholic Student Center Provides 
Fellowship, Worship Activities 

The Catholic Student Organization reached a new height with the completion of the renovation of the Catholic 
Student Center at Holy Cross Church. 

The center, which includes a studying area, library, dining area and kitchen, took three years and approximately 
$525,000 to complete. 

According to the Rev. Sheldon Roy, six-year pastor of Holy Cross Church, the student center now serves about 3,00C 
students. 

Angela Courville felt the renovated center created a better sense of reverence for students and the community. 

Founded in 1909 under the name Apostleship of Prayer, the CSO was first started as an opportunity for Catholic stu- 
dents to have fellowship and prayer. The organization has undergone both physical and structural changes. 

The CSO originally met in a building on Northwestern 's 
campus which was shared by Lutherans, Baptists and other reli- 
gious groups. Later the organization became the Newman Club 
and finally the Catholic Student Organization in 1968. 

"Serving the spiritual needs of Northwestern students 
and faculty and providing higher academic excellence" is the 
purpose of the CSO, Roy said. 

This organization has blossomed into a campus church 
that provides The Eucharist, devotions, Bible studies, vespers, 
counseling and prayer services for students of all denomina- 
tions. 

According to Roy, the most popular time for students to 
attend mass was Sunday at 9:30 p.m. 

"I attend Mass weekly, but I especially like the 9:30 
mass because more Northwestern students attend," Elizabeth 
Storer said. 

A prayer service was held each Wednesday at 7 p.m. 
and was followed by a home cooked meal. 

"The Wednesday night suppers as well as all of the 
other programs help provide that 'at home' feeling to stu- 
dents," Courville said. 

In order to become involved at the CSO, all one has to 
do is show up, Roy said. 

The organization provided several opportunities to become involved in 
addition to worship and prayer services. 

For example, the CSO had a retreat team. This team planned each 
upcoming semester's retreat offered to CSO students as a time to break away 
from stressful routines and grow spiritually, according to Storer. 

Intramurals were also a way for members to get involved. In fact, the CSO won the presidential award several years 
in a row for its involvement in IM activities. 

Attending the biannual state-wide conference held by the Louisiana Catholic College Students Organization was yet 
another way members were involved.

Miss Annie 

Lewis Leaves 'Home' 
After 41 Years of Service 

On Sept. 14, 1955, a shy young woman entered the President's Home to start her first day of work as 
housekeeper to Dr. John S. Kyser. 

On Oct. 1, 1996, Annie Bell Lewis retired after diligently serving over 41 years and six presidents. 

"I can remember my very first year with the Kysers," Lewis said. "They were nice people and made 
me feel very welcome. Coming to work was like coming home." 

Her first year was smooth and went flawlessly, except for one instance where Annie thought her 
career would be over. "I thought I would be going home," she said. 

Mrs. Kyser was off getting her hair done in preparation of the evening's party while Annie dusted 
and prepared the house for the company that was going to arrive. She accidentally chipped an old glass 
globe which was on a lamp. 

"I was sure I was in trouble. I called Mr. Roy Watkins over at People's Hardware. He rushed over 
with a new globe. I thought I was saved, and then I thought I was gone again when Mrs. Kyser drove up and 
saw him leaving," Lewis said. Everything worked out fine. 

Annie's service record to the presidents of Northwestern has been superb over her tenure with six

enough for anyone's job. them as she did with the Kysers 

During Dr. Arnold Kilpatricks term, the President's House was 
built on Chaplin's Lake. "This house is so beautiful," Lewis said. 
"You know, Mrs. Kilpatrick designed this house." 

The Kilpatrick tenure was the longest in Lewis' career. "I was 
very close to the Kilpatricks. I remember when Dr. Kilpatrick 
announced his retirement, I cried," Lewis added. 

After the Kilpatricks left the house, the Bienvenus and the Orzes occupied the home. In 1 986, Dr. 
Robert Alost and his wife, Alma, entered the house and stayed until his retirement in May 1996. 

"The Doc [Alost] was a very wonderful man. He sure did so much for this campus," Lewis said. 
"He built this place up." 

Lewis was planning her retirement with Alost, but she decided to stay and set up housekeeping with 
the Webbs. She has already become attached to the Webbs in only a few months. "They are such nice peo- 
ple. I love them," Lewis said somewhat regretfully. 

Her time was up though. "I think 41 years is long enough for anyone's job," she said. "I am very 
blessed by God. My mother is still alive. My children are all grown- my grandchildren-I love them dearly. 
My husband, Kanick, has always loved me so and has been so supportive of me. I want to spent time with 
them." 

"I feel that I have a good portion of my health and strength left; I want to enjoy my life with my 
wonderful family. I really want to take care of my mom."

Students Elect Downey, Hooper 
Mr. and Miss Northwestern State 

Many have held the honor before them. It is 
an honor voted on by their peers to recognize the 
service and dedication of these individuals while at 
Northwestern. It is the title of Mr. and Miss 
Northwestern. 

The 1996 recipients of Mr. and Miss 
Northwestern have been involved in all facets of stu- 
dent life. Mr. Northwestern Carlton Downey and 
Miss Northwestern Martha Hooper were elected by 
the student population in the fall. They were hon- 
ored at the Northwestern-Troy State football game. 

When considering the main factor in becom- 
ing Mr. Northwestern, Downey felt giving time to 
Northwestern was the reason for his election. 

Hooper also felt she was elected "because of 
involvement and giving back to Northwestern." 

Downey held the positions of Kappa Alpha 
Order president, Blue Key vice president and SGA 
President. Hooper s positions included president of 
Sigma Sigma Sigma, Purple Jackets treasurer, Order 
of Omega, Kappa Delta Pi and the Catholic Student 
Organization. 

According to Hooper, she developed leader- 
ship through involvement at Northwestern. 
"Northwestern gave me the courage to not ever 
think any obstacle was too high," she said. 

Downey, a Scholars' College student and 
business major, commented on the chance to 
become a well-rounded student. "Northwestern is a 
very conducive atmosphere to gain knowledge as 
well as to explore extracurricular activities." 

As an education major, Hooper felt the 
greatest honor as Miss Northwestern came when she led an awards ceremony for the 
eighth grade at the Northwestern Middle Lab School. 

"I felt so privileged to represent Northwestern where I was doing my methods," and Miss Northwestern. 
Hooper said. 

When looking at his honor, Downey expressed his belief that Mr. Northwestern should care about the University 
and do things that benefit it. 

Hooper feels that she has left a spirit and enthusiasm for Northwestern for future students. "My parents are alumni 
of Northwestern, so I have known and loved Northwestern since I was little."

"Joint Venture is NASA's link to universi-

Lissa Pollacia, JOVE academic advisor, said. 

During their first semester, students met

According to Dr. Austin Temple, Division

Pollacia stated. JOVE provided a unique 
opportunity for students to engage in real 
research at an undergraduate level. 

Students worked with professors at 
NASA research centers on research and data 
analysis. Pollacia noted that the professors do 
not even know the answers to the research pro- 
grams. 

"Programs for JOVE deal with real-life 
problems that 1 never tackled before." Chad 
Averett, JOVE student, said. "You have to 
learn what works and through trail and error 
figure out your own personal way of doing it."

According to General Manager Buddy 
Wollfarth who was a senior broadcast journal- 
ism major, the station's live format was better 
for student DJ's because they got to express 
their musical taste and interact with the audi- 
ence a lot more by taking requests. "It is just a 
lot more fun," Wollfarth said. 

KNWD served the students by provid- 
ing a variety of musical formats that students 
may not have been able to hear on commercial 
radio stations. This consisted of every format 
except country. 



"We do not carry country because we are an 
alternative to the market," Wollfarth said. 

Wollfarth and 10 other students made up the 
management staff at KNWD. Though it was not a prof- 
it-making business, Wollfarth said it was run in a simi- 
lar fashion. 

"We are regulated by the Federal 
Communications Commission, but not only that, we do 
strive to live up to the community's standards as well," 
Wollfarth said. "We do not allow foul language on the 
air and we try not to offend any groups. The great thing 

about our station is that 
you can learn from

KNWD played mod-

From weekly movies to an assortment of contests, 
the Student Activities Board sponsored numerous activities 
this year to keep students both entertained, as well as inter- 
ested in campus life. 

According to David Deggs, SAB vice president, "The 
Student Activities Board is a service provided to the students 
of NSU, sponsoring activities to allow students to break 
away from the monotony of the weekly grind.''' 

The activities sponsored by the SAB ranged from the 
weekly movies shown in the Alley to the culmination of the 
school year with the annual Spring Fling Week held during 
April. 

From month to month, semester to semester, the SAB 
offered a variety of activities and programs for students to 
attend. 

The SAB's weekly service to the students was there 
showing of free movies in the Alley. 

During the spring semester, activities and special 
guests included the Parade of Dynasties-Chinese Acrobats, 
Ad-Libs Comedy Troupe and the annual Spring Fling. 

During "Absolute Spring Fling," activities included 
comedian Rock Reubin, "Alpha Experience," a novelties 
motion simulator and two free concerts, one featuring the 
award winning Christian group Point of Grace and the other 
featuring the award winning pop group All-4-One. 

As students returned from summer break, SAB spon- 
sored "Welcome Week" during the first week of the fall 
semester to get the incoming students and returning Demons 
ready for the upcoming semester. 

During "Welcome Week" numerous activities were 
held, including Human Bowling, Bounce-N-Box, Virtual 
Reality 2000 and Hot Shots Wacky Photos. During 
"Welcome Week," NSU students were again treated to the 
comedy of the Ad-Libs Comedy Troupe in the Alley. 



October brought NSU Homecoming 1996 with its 
theme "Lets Wrap This Thing Up." During Homecoming 
Week, the SAB sponsored many contests to raise "Demon 
Spirit." These contests included the annual Mr. 
Homecoming Hunnie Contest, won by Chad Watson, the 
annual Lip Sync contest and a banner contest. 
Homecoming Week activities included the Homecoming 
Parade and Pep Rally on Front Street, considered to be a 
great success with approximately 50 entries. 

October also brought "Red Ribbon Week" to the 
NSU campus. To help raise awareness about alcohol use, 
the SAB had Wendy Fox come and speak with students 
about alcohol awareness. In addition, comedienne Taylor 
Mason came and kept many students laughing with his 
appearance. 

During November, students could pretend they were 
the next Grammy Award winning artist with Star Struck 
Studios. This allowed students to make their own music 
video to a song of their choice. 

The spirit of Christmas abounded during December 
with the SABs community service projects, a canned food 
drive and Christmas tree contest. The canned food 
collected and decorated trees were then donated to needy 
families in the Natchitoches area. 

Although Alex Trebek was not there, the SAB spon- 
sored NSU Jeopardy, allowing participating students to win 
cash and prizes based on their knowledge. 

The spring semester found the SAB working hard 
to prepare for the new upcoming year, with weekly movies 
beginning again in January. 

February was another big month for the SAB. The 
Mardi Gras Mambo, co-sponsored with ARAMARK Food 
Services, treated students to free food and entertainment, in 
addition to the giving away of the traditional Mardi Gras 
beads and trinkets.

According to SAB Committee member Ursula Newman, "Until I joined the Student Activities Board, I never real- 
ized how many activities the SAB sponsored on the NSU campus for the students." 
Deggs said, "We want to do the best job we can for our fellow students." 

"We love to see lots of students at the events," Newman said. "The SAB is here to serve the students and when the 
activities we sponsor generate a good turn-out of students, it makes us feel that all the time and hard work we put into 
organizing them was well worth it." ^^^^^^M^MMI^M^MI^^^MM Kevin Brough

Non-traditional Students 



)bby Carney works at the job placement office as part 
his work study. 

Approximately 40 percent of Northwestern 
students are "non-traditional students," according to 
Institutional Research data. 

According to Yvonne Alost, coordinator of 
the credit program for the Division of Continuing 
Education, non-traditional students are generally 
defined as students who are more than 25 years old 
who are working to earning an associate or bache- 
lor's degree. These students may be current or for- 
mer members of the military, single mothers, stu- 
dents who are starting their education again after 
several years or people who decided to begin college 
after several years in the workforce. 

While some students mesh with the tradition- 
al student scene, others continue with responsibili- 
ties including family and work. 

Patricia Kyzar returned to school after 24 
years to make more money. 

"The hardest thing about going back is math 
because I have always hated math," Kyzar said, who 
is a full-time secretary for the Natchitoches Parish 
school system 

Joan Friday, 40, is a special education major. 
She worked before returning to school. Her most 
recent position was as an aide for a local public 
school. She said that it's a lot of work between 
school, and family. 

In addition, Friday has hearing problems. If 
the teacher turns his or her back, she can't hear 
them. However, she has still been able to achieve a 
3.5 cumulative average up to her junior year. 
Bobby Carney can be heard over the airways of 
KNWD. He also is a member of Theta Chi 
Fraternity. Carney served four years in the military 
before coming to Northwestern. 

"I could not have made it through college 
coming right out of high school," Carney said. 

Carney decided to come to Northwestern 
because some of his friends went here, and he liked 
the campus while visiting. Also, there is a Calvary 
Unit in town. Louisiana's National Guard gives him 
tuition exemption and regular drill pay. 

When Carney came back he had to adjust to 
civilian life instead of the army's "language." 
According to Carney, adjusting socially was fairly 
easy except in dating because of the age gap. 

Carney is involved in starting a new organiza- 
tion called the Veterans Student Association. "[It 



will] try to help other vets get established, get jobs, 
get tutors and make it easier to adjust and get 
involved," Carney said. 

"I don't like the term non-traditional student. 
It kind of alienates me. It's not like we get any spe- 
cial benefits." 

The Division of Continuing Education strived 
to open all doors possible to assist non-traditional 
students earn a degree. 

"Our role is to make college courses and a 
college degree more accessible to working people, 
military personnel and those on limited hours and 
income," Alost said. "We do that through different 
ways of providing educational needs and require- 
ments. They can range from on-campus classes, off- 
campus classes, television classes and credit by 
examination and transfer." 

The Division of Continuing Education offers 
mainly core requirements; however, with the addition 
of qualified faculty and enough interest, the depart- 
ment can offer a variety of classes. 

The Nursing Education Center in Shreveport 
used compressed video to reach students. Advanced 
technology including the Internet promises to make 
attending college more accessible. 

"You'd be surprised at the number of people 
who we are helping to obtain their college degree, 
when they didn't think it was possible," Alost said. 

"Older students who were involved-inspired 
me when I came back," Carney said. 

Alost related one occasion at one of the 
remote off-campus locations when she asked stu- 
dents to write comments on how the staff could 
improve services. 

"A mother of two-year old triplets wrote that 
without this program that was offered in her home- 
town she would not have been able to go to college. 
This was in 1995, and she has continued to pursue 
her degree and has done very well," Alost said. 
Others feel the same. 

"Em going to be so proud of myself when 1 
finish," Friday said. 

The Division of Continuing Education works 
with academic departments to offer students an 
opportunity to start or complete a college degree. 
Classes are offered during evening hours on the 
Natchitoches campus and at satellite and off-campus 
sites, and via distance learning when available. An 
individualized program of study can be proposed.

Christmas Festival 1996 

Student Volunteers Play Vital Role in Event s Success 




Northwestern students 
played important roles in the 
success of the festival. 

The biggest contributions 
were by Dr. Lynn Woods' 
entertainment management 
class. The class prepared for 
the festival all semester; 
working during the festival 
was a course requirement. 

"The students were 
informed on the first day of 
class that if they could not 

work during the Christmas 

Festival, they would have to 

drop the class," Woods said. 
[ According to Woods, the 
[ class learned everything 

from crowd control to fire 
safety in preparation for the event. The police depart-

ment gave a seminar on crowd control, the fire department taught them how to extinguish fires and the paramedics gave 
instruction on how to access ambulance routes in case of emergencies. 

The students were dispersed at the disposal of the director of the festival, Jon Maynard. 

"I assured Mr. Maynard that our students were prepared and very professional with the duties that would be assigned 
to them," Woods said. 

Students were assigned to groups that were responsible for various activities. According to Maynard, the students 
assigned to the parades were responsible for greeting everyone in the parade 
and aligning them in their proper position. Other students helped with the| 
entertainment on the river front. 

"They made sure equipment was in place and they also 
announced the performers," Maynard said. 

Maynard stated that other groups were assigned to an information 
booth or a central control committee. Still others set up the vendors on 
the river front. The students at the information booth handed out festival 
maps that were donated by the Alexandria Daily Town Talk. They also 
answered questions from tourists and documented each one to help the 
festival run even smoother in the future. Other students aligned food 
booths and checked vendors for proper licenses. The group who was 
assigned to the central control committee took care of any problem that 
arose after the festivities were underway. 

"Where there was a problem, they fixed it," Maynard said. 

Maynard was very pleased with the students and said that he n Megan 

heard nothing but positive remarks regarding their work. Johnson, Shelly Davis, and

The annual Christmas Gala, Bowden, a caroler, prepare backstage for 
put together by the Creative and the annual Gala. 
Performing Arts Department, 
kicked off the Christmas Festival activities on Dec. 6. 

The Gala, a free show open to the public, has been going on for 1 1 
years, though it has changed over the years. This year it was co-directed by 
usic professor Michael Rorex and dance professor Ed Brazo. Brazo has been contributing to the Gala for five years, and 
orex has contributed for three years; this was the first year for either of them as co-director. 

Auditions for the Gala started in October, followed by six weeks of preparation. During the week of the show all 
:ctions came together to rehearse; however, planning began before. 

"Preparation is the largest part because trying to get new ideas and being creative requires you to keep thinking all 
;ar long," Brazo said. 

"The main thing. ..is not to get stuck with certain things that limit the performance," Rorex said. "It's our duty to 
•esent the highest quality of music and dance as a creative and performing arts program, but it is also our obligation to 
iake it as enjoyable and as interesting as we can." 

This year the Gala was more visual than in past years. 

"It's still a potpourri of music, dance, and very little acting this year because [they] took out the Smudge sequence," 
razo said. 

The choir's processional was omitted, and instead, the singers were used more as theatricals. Both said that they 
ked these changes because the show needed to be lightened up and made more visual to hold the children's attention. 

Another addition that was made was having little toy soldiers. The kids were from the Susan Hussey Dance 
ompany in Alexandria. 

The Northwestern Horn Choir, Men's Chorus, Ladies Ensemble and Dance Ensemble were the main performers for 
le show. The show began with "Sleighride" with everyone arriving with Christmas cheer as Santa Clans arrived, which 
orex said he felt spelled out Christmas. Brazo felt the wooden soldiers appeared to be the favorite act; the idea came from 
Radio City Music Hall show. 

"Christmas is really a very simple thing," Brazo said. "I think the audience feels a part of the show" 
This year, as in the past, the show concluded with the "One Solitary Life," narration which ended "...All the armies

Long Purple Line 



Homecoming activities this year included not only the traditional 
parade and football game, but also the induction of three men into the 
prestigious NSU Hall of Distinction, the Long Purple Line. 

Dr. Edward C. Greco, Bobby Harling and Theodore H. Roberts 
were formally inducted as part of Homecoming activities on October 19. 

Greco, a noted research scientist from Shreveport, graduated 
from Northwestern in 1934. For six years, he served as a member of 
Northwestern 's faculty. In addition, Greco also worked with such corpo- 
rations including Dupont, United Gas Corp. and F.W. Corrosion Control. 

The National Science Foundation and the National Association of 
Corrosion Engineers in 1962 appointed him head of a team of six 
American corrosion engineers on a reciprocal exchange visit to the 
Soviet Union. The following year, Greco was selected by the State 
Department and the NSF to serve as chaperone to six Soviet corrosion 
scientists who visited research U. S. research laboratories. 

In his field, Greco served as chairman of the International 
Corrosion Council which he helped form. The ICC includes 1,100 mem- 
bers in 47 countries. To honor Greco, the Council established the Edward 
Greco Award, awarded to an outstanding corrosion scientist. Greco also 
served as president of the International Congress on Metallic Corrosion. 

Greco served as president of the Louisiana Academy of Science. 
He was responsible for organizing the Louisiana State Science fairs and 
was state science fair director for 10 years. For his contributions to tech- 
nical and vocational education in Shreveport, Greco was awarded the 
Meritorious Civic Service Award by the Shreveport Chamber of 
Commerce. 

In addition, Greco received an honorary doctorate of science 
degree from Centenary College for his contributions to science and sci- 
ence education. 

Steel Magnolias ' author Bobby Harling was also inducted in the 
Hall of Distinction. A successful playwright and screenwriter, Harling, a 
1973 graduate of NSU, was instrumental in seeing that the film version 
of Steel Magnolias was shot in Natchitoches. 

After earning his degree at NSU, Harling attended Tulane Law 
School where he earned money singing in a band called "Jubilation" and 
acting in a local theater. Upon earning his law degree, Harling headed for 
New York and worked in regional theater, finding success as a commer- 
cial voice-over actor on television, selling everything from chili to chick- 
en. 

In 1985, after losing his sister to complications from diabetes, 
Harling turned his grief into a creative storm that inspired the story 
"Steel Magnolias." Written in just 10 days, the play drew on actual fami- 
ly experiences. It was an enormous and instant success off-Broadway and 
led to the film version. 

Harling was also the screenwriter for "Soapdish" and was an 
uncredited screenwriter for "Sister Act" and "Sister Act II." Other pro- 
jects Harling undertook included "First Wives Club" and "Evening Star," 
which were released in the fall of 1996. 



Harling also added another 
complishment to his belt, 
3ugh away from the entertain- 
;nt business, with the restoration 
Oaklawn Plantation near 
itchitoches, his home. 

Reared in Zwolle, 
leodore Roberts, a 1949 gradu- 
al of NSU retired as president of 
iSalle National Corporation, a 
7 billion multibank holding 
mpany in Chicago and chairman 
LaSalle Bank, an $1 1 billion 
ieral savings bank. Roberts was 
;o chief financial officer and 
ecutive management committee 
jmber of ABN AMRO North 
nerica, the $70 billion U S. 
nking affiliate of a Dutch based 
ternational banking organization. 

In addition, Roberts was 
airman and chief executive offi- 
r of Talman House Federal 
ivings and Loan Association 
)m 1985 until its acquisition by 
BN AMRO in 1992. Roberts 
sumed the position at the 
quest of the federal government 
len the thrift industry was in cri- 
;. Roberts was able to convert it 
to a publicly owned stock com- 
ity, restoring Talman to sound 
mdition. 

From 1982 to 1985, 
Dberts was president and CEO of 
e Federal Reserve Bank of St. 
)uis. During this time, he served 
a member of the Federal Open 
arket Committee which manages 
e nation's monetary policy. 

He began his career with 
arris Trust and Savings Bank in 
)53 where he was executive vice 
esident, secretary and treasurer 
hen he left to accept the presi- 
mcy of the Federal Reserve 
ank of St. Louis. 

Roberts earned his master's 
Jgree from Oklahoma State and 
tended the Graduate School of 
usiness at the University of 
hicago.

Sweethearts Assist In Football Recruitment 

Football players, coaches and recruits sit in a luncheon trying to create a new 
team for the upcoming season. 

Assisting in the process were 25 Demon sweethearts, whose key purpose is to 
play a major role in recruiting. During the football season, the Sweethearts were the 
official hostesses for the team. In the playing season, each football player was given a 
Sweetheart as a secret pal who gave him a treat before each home game. 

When recruiting season arrived, the Sweethearts worked with Coach Kevin 
Corless, recruiting coordinator, and the rest of the coaching staff to ensure the success 
of each weekend's recruitment. 

"Demon Sweethearts give the recruits another perspective other than football

players," Wendy Duffield, Sweetheart president, said. 
"We let the recruits see college through the eyes of an 
average student." 

According to Duffield, the Sweethearts often shared the history of Natchitoches 
with recruits along with Northwestern traditions. Sweethearts also gave tours of the 
Field House. 

"Demon Sweethearts help recruits feel at home," Duffield said. "Our organiza- 
tion allows the recruits to mingle with other students besides the players." 

"Putting up signs and giving encouraging quotes hyped [the players] up " Tara 
Lewis said. 

According to Lewis, the hype helped pump the players up for the game. The 
Sweethearts' motivation towards the team also encouraged the crowd to get more 
involved during the game. 

Demon Sweethearts was developed in the Spring of 1996 to assist with recruit- 
ing. Corless worked with Liz Mullins, Sweetheart sponsor, to organize the group. Girls 
were selected through an application process. 

Interviews were held again in August 1996 to find 15 new girls. 

"We had 50 girls apply, and we could only take 15," Duffield said. "It was excit- 
ing to see this response for such a new group." 

Lewis felt the large interest might cause future expansion of the organization. 

"Being a part of Demon Sweethearts makes me feel like I am making a differ- 
ence for the recruits in choosing to come to Northwestern." Duffield said. "1 feel like an 
asset." 

Lewis said that she had gained friendships and the experience of helping people 
from the organization. 

The Demon Sweethearts worked with the Bins and Curls Club, entered the SAB 
contest to give Christmas trees to needy families and had a food drive with the football 
team. _ _ Paula Crover & Kristine Eckerman

The co-rec team, which called themselves "Get Big," played in the state tournament during the 
anksgiving holidays. They finished the first day undefeated by beating LSLTs second team, Nicholls and NLU. 
e first day wins gave them a bye to the semi-finals where they defeated LSUs first team 1 7-0. The champi-

each student an opportunity to participate regard- 
less of ability or interest. 

The Recreation Sports Department orga- 
nized various nonvarsity sporting events for stu- 
dent at Northwestern State. Many students enjoy 
the competitive nature of intramural sports. 
Intramural sports consisted of four main sports: 
flag football and volleyball in the fall, and basket- 
ball and softball in the spring. Students may form 
teams to compete in these sporting events. The 
teams who place receive points which are totaled 
at the end of the spring semester to determine an 
overall winner. Minor intramural events also occur 
throughout the year. These events include such 
things as bowling, swimming, pool and ping pong 
tournaments, golf, and tennis. 

The 1996 flag football season was a huge 
success. It gave students the opportunity to show 
their skills as well as meet new people. In addi- 
tion, it provided a safe and organized environment 
for students to compete for the goal of winning the 
league championships. Approximately 29 teams 
participated over a three week season with each 
team playing six games. 

The league was divided into four separate 
divisions: Greek, Open Men, Women, and Co Rec. 
The league champions included Theta Chi 
(Greek), TTG (Women), CSO (Open), and CSO 
(Co-Rec). The Men's All-Campus championship 
went to CSO, who defeated Theta Chi in the cham- 
pionship , 

The Fitness Center continued to be one of 
the most popular aspects of the Recreational 
Sports Department. Students may visit the weight 
room from 6 p.m.- 9 p.m. to enjoy a good "work 
out." The fitness center offers up-dated equipment 
for student and faculty use. The cardiovascular 
equipment includes stair-masters, step-mills, 
recumbent bicycles, and rowing machines. The fit-j^ 
ness center also contains many different muscular 
strength equipment including free-weights and 
machines. When asked what they liked most 
about the weight room, students responded by 
using words such as "well equipped," "get a 
good workout," "convenient," and "helpful 
staff." Scott Bruscato, assistant director, over- 1 
sees th fitness center and is available to develop £ 
individual fitness plans for interested students. I

irthwestern State students. The annual Half-Niter was by far the most successful event hosted this year. During 
: ninth annual event, approximately 450 people enjoyed a cook-out, pep-rally and bonfire in the celebration of 
s Homecoming spirit. At 9 p.m., the excitement moved inside as approximately 30 teams participated in crazy 
ay race games and vied for prizes donated by local restaurants. CSO was the overall winner of the evening 

events, with the NSU Rowing Team coming in a close second. 
Throughout the night, clues were given for our treasure hunt. 
Students searched into the wee hours of the night, and two were suc- 
cessful in finding treasures worth $125 each. Congratulations to 
Kirk Soileau and Micha Coleman for solving the clues! The trea- 
^ sures were hidden under a bench by the baseball field and behind 
Prather Coliseum. 

Quality recreational sports facilities are becoming a very 
popular and viable component in the recruitment and retention 
efforts of colleges and universities across the nation. Today's stu- 
dents are concerned with physical fitness, mental and physical 
wellness and the pursuit of recreational outlets to facilitate 
interest and stress release activities. 

Research was conducted to ascertain the feasibility of 
building a "Center for Lifetime Sports" on Northwestern 's 
campus. Surveys were mailed to over 600 students during 
the 1996 fall semester with results showing a significant 
desire on behalf of the students to support a new facility. 
Approximately 89 percent of those surveyed said that they 
would fully support a new recreational sports complex on 
the NSU campus. Tentatively, a scheduled referendum for 
the Spring 1997 semester was established to seek student permission to 
pursue the construction of the new facility. With student and Board of Trustees approval, 
ew "Center for Lifetime Sports" might be completed by 2000.

Babove right: Jenifer House enjoys traveling in 
jNorway while on her ISEP exchange to Sweden. 




As different as it may be, Nadja Hanggi, 
Aida Palces, Bastien Parisot and Valerie Perche 
found a new home on campus. The four students 
took part in the International Student Exchange 
Program bringing different perspectives from other 
parts of the world. 

"I did want to come to Louisiana, but I had 
no idea what Natchitoches was like. For many in 
France, this place is a very important part of our 
history. I like it here," Perche, who studied busi- 
ness, said. 

During their short time here, Perche and 
Parisot, both from France, had some surprises that 
were very welcome. "People are very friendly here 
and that would never happen in France," Parisot 
said. "You don't talk to people you don't know." 

"I'm not sure that's good or bad the way we 
meet people," Perche said. "It's neat seeing the dif- 
ferences. We are more reserved in France." 

"I got lucky by choosing Northwestern 
because everyone is so friendly. I didn't expect to 
meet so many people so quickly," Palces said. 
"Everybody here says 'hi' even if they don't know 
you. The people here are warm and friendly just 
like the people in the Philippines. It's like I didn't 
leave home." 



For Hanggi, getting accustomed to the food 
was the hardest thing. "Here, it's hard to get a nor- 
mal meal, one that is not so fattening or so sweet." 
Hanggi hails from Switzerland where meals are 
served in courses. "You first have the salad, then 
what we call the menu, or the meal, then that is 
followed by dessert. Here, you can just grab french 
fries for a meal and top it off with a candy bar," 
Hanggi said. 

Hanggi, Parisot and Perche also found reli- 
gious devotion by so many in this area interesting. 
"My grandmother was very religious, but, now, not 
many young people in France go to church," 
Perche said. "In France, we separate school and 
religion very much so. You can be religious, just 
not in school." 

"Sometimes discussing religion puts me 
under pressure," Hanggi said . "I've grown up in a 
world where you do not express yourself religious- 

iy." 

The students said they also grew up with 
the desire to speak better English in order to 
become successful adults. "I've always liked the 
English language," Parisot said. "The exchange 
program was the most economical way to spend 
time in America, study and do something useful." 

Parisot, who majored in business, found 



i

ISEP 



it mastering the English language wasn't his biggest 
allenge, but rather putting in the time that was 
[uired for studying. 

"I study a lot compared to what I used to 
:ause at home the classes are not organized the 
ne. Back home, I did not have a lot of homework, 
i I studied about an hour a day. Now, I have to read a 
more," Parisot said. The 23 -year old graduated in 
le 1996 from Esinsa, an engineering school in Nice, 
mce, before coming to the United States. 

"I read a lot more as well," the 22-year old 
:che said. "It takes me many times and I use a dictio- 
•y a lot." Perche obtained an economy science degree 
June 1996 from the French University, Aix-En- 
wence. At Northwestern, she was enrolled in inter- 
ional business, business law, accounting, English 
i management. "In the classes, I don't understand all 
what happens," Perche said. "It depends on the 
cher. When they write on the board it is easier for 

Occasionally, the students needed special help 
hiding books or tutoring. "I am taking American 
tory, history of Louisiana, government of the United 
ites and mass communication," Hanggi said. "They 
; hard, but real interesting. My professors understand 
r situation and they offer help." The 24-year-old 
nggi, who majored in history, political science and 
irnalism at Fribourg University in Switzerland, also 
d an apprenticeship as a chemical lab assistant while 
ending college. 

Palces, a pre-medicine student from Manila, 
ilippines, took courses in zoology, calculus, microbi- 
igy and organic chemistry. "I've been very impressed 
th the faculty here," Palces said. "The method of 
truction is different. In the Philippines, everything is 
*y detailed, but here the focus is on giving you an 
;rview of the subject." 

The students wrote letters, made phone calls 
i even used e-mail to keep in touch with their fami- 
5. In Palces' case, she didn't have to look far to be 
ninded of her home land. "Soon after I got here, I 
ited Magnolia Plantation (near Natchitoches)," she 
d. "It was just like plantations in the Philippines." 

Although Perche occasionally longed for home, 
; never doubted her reasons for being at 
>rthwestern. "I wanted to see a new culture," Perche 
d. "I wanted to be able to compare my life in France 
a life here. It's a challenge and I want to know better 
tat I want and to become an adult."

Theater Presents 

John Guare's Tragicomedy 
House of Blue Leaves 

Northwestern 's Theater Department lured 
audiences this fall with contemporary playwright 
John Guare's award winning "The House of Blue 
Leaves." Dubbed by director Dr. Jim Stacy, assis- 
tant professor of theater, as a "painfully zany 
tragicomedy," the theater department experiment- 
ed with an incredibly difficult play that had an 
even more challenging script. 

The setting of this production involved a 
"cold apartment in Sunnyside, Queens, New York 
City on Oct. 4, 1965, 'the day the Pope came to 
New York."' Careful attention was assigned to the 
construction of the set. This included working 
windows and doors, a carefully constructed life- 
like kitchen, a piano and even hints of an apart-

ment complex hallway outside the front door. 

The play centered around a highly dysfunc- 
tional family which included Artie, a zookeeper 
played by Mike Mayhall, who aspires to be a famous 
songwriter; his wife, Bananas, played by Aimee 
Lasseigne, who impersonates a dog; and their 
AWOL son, Ronnie, played by Clayton Chauvin. 

Stacy said the plot centers around "a serious 
family drama focusing on a family with a lot of 
problems, but it also has some comic antics." He 
added, "This is a zany kind of play to work on. The 
most difficult thing about pulling off this play is 
finding the balance between the family's pain and 
the playwright's comic mania." 

The plot seemed to go in many directions at 
once, wreaking almost complete havoc. As the play 
progressed, the family's mental state deteriorated, as 
did the script, which resembled a farce more and 
more. According to Stacy, the first act was more 
realistic, while the second act was "really wild." 

The production also boasted several interest- 
ing special effects, including a bomb 
exploding on stage, and a projector above: Bananas, Aimee Lasseigne, tries to get her husband 

Artie, Mike Mayhall, to feed her like a dog.

this screen the taped prologue of the show

Other featured roles included Kayla 
LeMaire playing Bunny Flingus, Artie's 
mistress; Stephanie Hodgdon as Corrina 
Stroller; and Brett Daigle as Billy 
Einhorn. Other cast members were Allison 
Brewster, K.Renae Pullen, Melony 
Eberling, and Kelly Songy as the Nun 
troop, Eric Defratis as the Military 
Policeman, and Larry Bright as the Man 
in White. 

The cast and director all claimed to 
enjoy working on the play and despite the 
difficulties presented in the script. Stac) 
assured audiences that "the actors had 
what it took to pull off the tragicomedy in 
meat style."

The Gospel of Jeff 

What's in a Nickname? 



Jeff 'Cornboy ' Burkett 



When we are born, and that is how it usually happens, we are 
named by our parents. Usually a first name, followed by a much-hated 
middle name, and finally our last name. And if you happen to be 
lucky enough, you get a numeral or sometimes a "Jr." attached to your 
new title. On the birth certificate it goes, which makes it your new 
name for life. 

But where on this certificate is there a place for nicknames? 
And what is a nickname, and how do we get them? 

Officially, there is no place on a birth certificate for a nick- 
name. I have never seen any paperwork or document that requires you 
to put your nickname on it. And what in the hell is a nickname? It is an alter- 
nate name given to you by someone because of something. Who knows what 
that something is you did to receive that nickname, but you are stuck with it, sometimes for life. And 
most important, how do we get these so called nicknames? It is a mystery to the universe! 

When we arrive at Northwestern, we are usually known not by our names, but by numbers-our 
social security numbers. Without this, as students we do not exist on this campus, although we are 
physically here, in the eyes of the money takers, and class schedulers we are not! 

Over the first couple of days, the new students are bombarded with information that dictates 
where not to park, where to eat, where to find help, and so on. And over those first couple of days, we 
are thrust into an academic community where student organizations thrive on new recruits just like 
you. With meeting all of these people and finding out all about what they do, we become confused 
with them and they with us. 

Once we have decided which direction we think we should go, we settle down, look at the pile 
of work we are expected to do, and begin to "fit it" to our new home. Here is where we are brandished 
with our new names. The groups we associate with, the things we do, and the way we act — these are 
all the beginning steps to acquiring a new nickname! 

Anyone can get a nickname. But it is an outstanding few in which their nickname becomes 
more recognized than their actual name. These are the individuals of which great college experience 
stories are made. It could be anything from an occurrence of one event to a series of things that led 
this person to be recognized as their new nickname. A new nickname can come from something 
bizarre that someone did, something daring, something stupid or something that is just plain obvious 
about them that led to the nicknaming of the individual. 

And when we are nicknamed, the new name may be decided upon by a group of our peers, or it 
may come from just one individual who pointed out something that you did with just one word. Want 
an example? How about "Sleepy" or "Filthy" or "Chunk." It could also be a combination of words, a 
phrase, or an object. What about "Corn Bread", or "Catfish", or even "Brisket." People can also be 
given the nickname of a famous person, like "Fabio," or "Rambo," or even "Pee Wee." 

No matter what the name, a nickname is something that is given out in college like parking 
tickets. Anyone can get one! And keeping it takes effort. But in all, our college nicknames are the 
things that will remind us of the crazy things we did, and the people with whom we shared our lives 
with at Northwestern.

Flying Aces 

Flight Team Places Fourth at SAFECONs 




John Freed takes part 
in the victory flight 
home just above the 
New Braunfels, Texas 
airport. 



After coming back from Christmas break, Northwestern 's flight team got a surprise. 

The National Intercollegiate Flying Association's tournament they were originally planned to attend in 
October was rescheduled for February. 

The team consisting of Steven Bary, Toby Berthelot, David Camburn, John Freed and Casey Waller 
were given only a few short weeks to prepare for the trip to Southwest Texas Junior College in Uvalde, Texas, 
to compete in the Region IV SAFECON. 

Competing against seven schools in the region, the tournament was designed to test the technical 
aspects of pilots. Included were various ground and flying events. 

One flying event, usually held at the meet, consisted of finding several points on the ground after pre- 
determining how much fuel and time it would take to arrive at each point. Due to inclement weather, this high- 
light was missed altogether in the competition. 

The trip began with a long cross-country flight from the Natchitoches airport and ended at the Uvalde 
airport located on the west side of San Antonio. 

After a halfway decent nights sleep, the crew was awakened for an early morning practice under high

wind conditions with low clouds and rain. 

"After having to reschedule the meet 
once before, it was a disappointment to have 
foul weather throw plans off," Camburn said. 
"However, pilots must learn to adjust to all 
weather conditions." 

Following practice was the long 
process of registration before competitors 
tested their skills at the flight computer event 
and the s.c.a.n. event which were written, 
timed multiple-choice tests. 

According to Camburn, the team 
reported to the airport the following day with 
the intent of completing part of the flying 
events, but due to weather problems they 
were forced to complete the remaining 
ground events. 

The team also participated in a team 
volleyball competition to pass the time. 

The next day, with blue skies and few clouds, the flying events were successfully achieved. 
Flying events consisted of a power off gliding event, a power on short field landing event and a message drop. 
During the landing events, a heat of seven aircraft flew a traffic pattern at 800 feet above the ground. After a 
power reduction beam which is the point of touchdown, flaps are added and pilots must judge when to turn. 

Points were added for flying a non-rectangular pattern, not making a power reduction, not making it to the run- 
way, adding power, not using flaps, and landing 
too short or too long from the attempted point 
of touchdown. 

The message drop was a simulated 
bombing run on the airfield. Flying at 200 
feet above the ground, pilots lined up with a 
50-gallon drum and attempt to place a 
_ wooden "bomb" as close as possible to 
this barrel, if not inside it. 
The final day was filled with team spirit 
as the awards were presented to high- 
scoring participants. Northwestern 
placed fourth over all. 

"I was impressed at our perfor- 
mance," Camburn said. "Most stu- 
dents only get one chance to 
attend a competition due to 
expenses of practice and travel. 
Our team is young and most o\ 
the team should be eligible to 
compete again next year. We will all 
be looking forward to it."

The preparation that goes into making the Lady of the Bracelet 
pageant a success is often overlooked, according to Skeeter Henry, 
director of student activities. 

As early as September, the Student Activities Board and LOB 
director begin discussing possible themes for the pageant. 

With a Jan. 2 1 deadline for contestant entries, the size of the 
event begins to take shape. Pictures of the contestants, judges and all 
other groups involved in the pageant are taken for the event's program. 
Judges are selected from among a list provided from the official 
Miss Louisiana judges list, according to Henry. 

In addition, a master of ceremonies is sought in the fall semester. 
Usually, the reigning Miss Louisiana is asked to serve in this capacity. 

The talents of campus organizations are also utilized in the event. 
Entertainment presented in between competitions is offered from groups 
including the retiring queen, Demon Dazzlers, Jazz band and other per- 
■^HM^HH^MI formers selected through auditions. 

Decorations, backdrops, awards and trophies are ordered at least four months before the 
>ageant begins. Auditors, ushers and backstage and production crews are chosen and begin their role 
n the pageant once the theme is selected. 

After all preliminary work is complete, the pageant begins to take shape. Crews and contes- 
ants alike spend long hours preparing weeks in advance for the event. The week of the pageant 
ncludes late-evening rehearsals, but the hard work pays off the night of the awaited event. 

"Viva Las Vegas" was the selected theme for the 1997 Miss Lady of the Bracelet pageant. 
Vith elaborate Vegas backdrops, entertainment included show girls and impersonators. In fact, an 
ilvis citing even took place. However, it was senior Kevin White, who was only an impostor. 

According to Henry, the pageant's publicity increased significantly this year with a half-page 
irticle appearing in the Alexandria Daily Town Talk and a live broadcast on NSU Channel 22. 

Nine students competed for the title and a chance to add their name to the charm bracelet 
>assed on each year to the newly-crowned Lady of the 
bracelet. Contestants included Kimberly Baird, Paige 
"ampbell, Brandy Coburn, Shelley Colvin, Lois Davis, 
\imee Lasseigne, Heather Ragsdale, Farrah Reyna and 
lose Triggs. 

Each contestant took part in the talent, evening 
>own and swimsuit competitions the evening of the 
)ageant. An interview between the judges and each contes- 
ant took place the day before the pageant. 

Prior to the evening's competition, contestants were 
ecluded as a group away from the judges. The SAB fol- 
ows the strict guidelines set forth by the Miss America 
>ageant System, according to Tracie Mitchell, SAB 
>ageant assistant. 

Reyna was chosen as the 1 997 Miss Lady of the 
bracelet. She won both the evening gown and talent com- 
>etitions, and she received the People's Choice Award. 
Colvin was first runner-up winning the swim suit contest, 
^asseigne was named Miss Congeniality. Ragsdale was

Northwestern took a

tudents receiving aid if they are not eligible. Loans will not have to be completed by hand, which is the current method. 

"One of the things I especially like about the new system is that this new software gives us the chance to pre-bill stu- 
dents," Mike Fuller, assistant director of financial aid, said. "Because of this, the students will receive a list of the charges 
ind anticipated financial aid so that when they come to fee payment the student will know exactly what they owe and how 
nuch they're getting back." 

tWhen will the students see the benefits of this new software program, SIS PLUS (Student Information Systems)? Not 
til next year. The target date for the actual transfer of systems is December 1997; however, the training of key department 
ads began this spring by consultants from SCT, Systems and Computer Technology of Dallas. The consultants gave "home- 
york assignments" to allow users to acquire working knowledge of the program. 

"Lots and lots of testing goes on to make sure that the information is correct and needed," Warren Massia. associate 
director of the Computer Center and coordinator of the SIS-Plus change. "This is the job of the teams." 

The job of the teams, which included Student Records, Financial Aid, Billing/Receivables, Admissions and technical 
Computer System), has to go over the program and verify that the information is correct. Due to this testing and re-testing, a 
ear is not that long to wait for the extraordinary benefits that come with SIS-Plus. 
Both students and faculty felt positive about the change. 

"The migration will require a commitment and dedication by all those concerned." Assistant Registrar Brenda I . < i S 
)ailey aid. "In the long run, the technology provided by the new system will be beneficial to everyone." 

From a student's perspective, senior Lesa Thompson thought anything that can make things simpler and faster is a 
?ood thing. "I'm glad to see NSU catch up to the 90 's."

Dr. Randall J. Webb, the 
17th president of 
Northwestern State. 



Webb investiture 

Dr. Randall J. Webb, who took over the office 
of president last summer, saw his dream become an 
official reality when he was invested on Nov. 20. 

The Investiture ceremony was held at A. A. 
Fredericks Auditorium where the Board of Trustees 
for the University of Louisiana System officially 
invested all of the powers, duties and responsibilities 
of the office of President of Northwestern to Webb. 

According to guest speaker Dr. Aubrey Lucas, 
president of the University of Southern Mississippi, 
these duties and responsibilities can be quite over- 
whelming at times. 

"You probably heard about the president who 
died and went to hell and was there two weeks before 
he realized he was dead," Lucas joked. 

Lucas continued his "Charge to the President" 
by asking all faculty, staff and students to help Webb 
become president of Northwestern, because effective 
presidents are not born, they are made. 

The one trait that sets successful leaders apart 
from the others, Lucas said, is persistence. 

"Great presidents help create universities 
through persistent leadership, which relentlessly pur- 
sues a vision of an old institution that can be better, 
regardless of how good it may now be," Lucas said. 

The ceremony also included speakers from the 
University who congratulated Webb and extended 
their continued support. 

SGA president Carlton Downey greeted Webb 
on behalf of the student body and issued a challenge 
to all students. 

"I challenge you today as students to stand 
behind Dr. Webb, to stand behind the administration 
and know that they are working in our best interest at 
all times," he said. 

"It is gratifying that the leadership of the insti- 
tution has been placed in the hands of an educator 
whose roots at Northwestern are deep and enduring," 
Thomas Chester, Northwestern Alumni Association 
president, said. 

Dawn Wilson, assistant to the president of the 
University of Louisiana System, spoke on behalf of 
the president who was not in attendance. 

"We are confident he [Webb] will lead this 
institution into the 21st century with unprecedented 
vision and direction," Wilson said. 

Webb responded by outlining several goals he 
would like to see all employees and students attain. 



"Northwestern can 
become a model of 
institutional integrity 
and configure promi- 
nently on the national 
scene." 
—Dr. Randall! Webb 



These goals are to provide top quality instruc- 
tion, advising and services to the students; to strength- 
en the quality of all areas of the university through 
continual assessment; to strengthen instruction, ser- 
vices and communication through the use of technolo- 
gy- 
Webb also mentioned a commitment to encour- 
age scholarship and creative endeavors on the part of 
the faculty; to move Northwestern toward a higher 
level of distinction through private fund-raising in 
support of academic scholarship; and to create a cli- 
mate on the campus where personal relationships are 
prized and where people speak and listen carefully to 
each other. 

Webb said that if all employees and students 
will work cooperatively together, care about one 
another and focus on the needs of the students, 
"Northwestern can become a model of institutional 
integrity and configure prominently on the national 
scene," he said. 

Webb also spoke of four principles he would 
like to instill in all Northwestern students as his par- 
ents instilled in his life. That is to love and trust God 
absolutely, to love others as yourself, to be forgiving 
and ask for forgiveness from those we have wronged 
and to cherish and revere Northwestern State 
University. 

Most importantly, though, Webb said that he 
hoped all would remember one characteristic that he 
feels will enhance human relationships and strengthen 
organizational systems here at Northwestern and in 
life, seek first to understand and be understanding. 

Webb concluded his address to the University 
by saying that he is the most fortunate man in the 
world, "fortunate because I have the opportunits to 
lead toward greatness, a university that 1 honor and 
love."

northwestern hits the air 



Since Northwestern had its own cable channel, 
I'm sure you were all excited to see men dance around 
in skintight outfits with chickens running at their feet 
while women dressed up as daffodils try to grow out of 
a hardwood floor. Right? Well if this psycho-classical 
programming was not what you expected from NSU 22, 
you might have tried Northwestern 's own news program. 

NSU News was a program, run almost entirely by 
students bringing campus and local news to the city of 
Natchitoches. The program started early in the fall 
semester with auditions for anchor, weather and sports 
positions as well as jobs on the production staff. The 
idea was met with great enthusiasm by the students, and 
many tried out for the jobs. The staff solidified into a 
working team that brought Natchitoches the news four 
days a week. 

NSU News aired a 30-minute show on 
Wednesdays and 1 0-minute updates Monday, Tuesday 
and Thursday. These shows televised many things 
including campus activities, national news, local news, 
sports and weather. It allowed students to be informed 
by students about things relevant in their lives. 

Each day a group of eight to 1 2 students showed 
up to make NSU News a reality. 

"The news crew really works well together, and 
we have a lot of fun with the program," Jonathan 
Wallace, technical director, said. 



David Antilley was the staff member who over- 
saw all of NSU News' shows. Antilley was there 
to watch the students and stepped in when 
something went amiss. 

"Now that we're live it is more important 
to make sure everything goes smoothly," 
Antilley said. "If something happens that 
shouldn't, whoever is watching will see it." 

Antilley added that the program was not 
intended to frighten the students but rather pre- 
pare them for the real world. 

"They can make mistakes here that 
would cost them their jobs in the real world," 
Antilley said. 

The staff was optimistic about the future 
of NSU News. They hoped that more students 
would tune in and the campus interest in the 
program will grow. The goal was to reach not 
only the campus but also the community of 
Natchitoches. NSU News was the only news 
program for the city and the crew was hoping to 
explore that area. 

"We're here to inform the people," 
Wallace said.

NSU News 



;h. 22 brings NSU to the students 

Beginning in mid-November 1996, 
Northwestern launched a new community-wide cable 
hannel in conjunction with TCA Cable of 
Jatchitoches. The new channel, NSU 22, christened its 
roadcast debut with the Presidential Investiture of Dr. 
Landall Webb. 

"For quite some time there has been an interest 
i utilizing cable television as an extension of what this 
niversity does, as a training ground for students and 
s a community service," Chip Turner, coordinator of 
ISU's cable television services, said. 

Cable Channel 22 offered a variety of educa- 
onal programming, including NSU student-produced 
ideos such as college classes, athletic events, campus 
erformances, lectures, continuing education courses 
rid special events such as the Presidential Investiture. 

In addition to the student-produced program- 
ling, NSU 22 secured other educationally-oriented 
rogramming, including a daily, hour-long science and 
;>ace program-NASA Television, Shamu TV, Turner 
roadcasting's electronic field trips, educational video 
Teconferences and the Classic Arts Showcase. 

During the airing of Turner Broadcasting's elec- 
onic field trips, viewers were given the opportunity to 
'ill in on a topic and ask questions. The first field trip, 
Calculations on a Curve Ball," took place in February. 
i April, the electronic field trip broadcasted from the 
'enters for Disease Control in Atlanta and scheduled 
lay programming from Hong Kong. 

"Because of this arrangement, students will be 
ole to take a class or two at home without traveling to 
lie University," said Dr. Ronald McBride, head of the 
.mrnalism Department. McBride stated that class pos- 
:bilities included English, history, psychology, sociol- 
gy, math and perhaps science, as well as non-credit 
rograms offered by the Division of Continuing 
Jducation. 

"This is yet another 'first' for Northwestern in 
lie use of technology to improve communication with 
ur students and the general public," Webb said. "We 
re indebted to Sam Holland and TCA Cable for the 
'sion they have demonstrated in this cooperative 
odeavor. This should increase significantly the amount 
c educational, cultural and athletic programming ema- 
nting from Northwestern." 

"Dr. Webb and Holland, executive vice president 
c TCA Cable TV, previously worked together to bung

various college programming to Natchitoches and 
Winnfield via cable and the venture was well received," 
Turner said. 

As part of the cable agreement, all incoming 
cable signals to the campus were to be incorporated into 
one feed, resulting in Kyser Hall as the signals point of 
origination. According to Turner, all of the main build- 
ings on-campus will have cable running to Kyser, allow- 
ing live programming to be shot from around campus. 

Channel 22 was designated as an "Educational 
Channel" in compliance with the definition set forth by 
the FCC and public law 102-385. Turner stated that 
Channel 22 was not a public access channel and that the 
term "educational" did not limit the channel to class- 
room type programming. 

In addition, NSU 21 was established as an on- 
campus channel in accordance with the agreement. 

According to Turner, "This channel is not tar 
along in the planning stages." However, Turner felt it 
would begin soon. 

It has several possibilities, Turner said, but for 
now it will be a "computer generated bulletin board that 
we can start fairly soon." 

In conjunction with these two new channels, the 
Northwestern Cable Programming Advisory Council 
was formed. This organization of Northwestern faculty 
and staff was responsible for helping to determine what 
programming was acceptable as well as helping to 
determine whether the purposes for which the channels 
were established were being kept. 

"We are committed to the program with all o\' 
our available resources and time to make it succeed."* 
Holland said. "It is exciting to be able to do this 
because this is the first project of this kind between a 
cable company and a university in Louisiana, and there 
is none exactly like it in the I .s ."

business moves 
to r u s s e I I 



After a renovation period of over two 
years, Russell Hall once again opened its 
doors to students. 



With the renovation of Russell Hall this year came the controversial move of the Division of Business. 

Russell Hall, a historic three-story building, underwent a $2.6 million renovation. Earlier plans called for 
making Russell Hall the home of the Louisiana Scholars' College, but Russell ended up housing the Division of 
Business. 

President Randy Webb said moving the Division of Business faculty and students to the building resulted ii 
more efficient space utilization in campus facilities. 

Louisiana Scholars' College programs and personnel moved to Morrison Hall, which served as the primary 
facility for the Division of Business since its construction in 1950. 

"The business program has simply outgrown Morrison Hall," Dr. Thomas Burns, interim vice president for 
academic affairs, said. "This new arrangement will provide adequate and functional classroom, laboratory and 
office space for both the Scholars' College and the Division of Business." 

The Division of Business had 1,000 students while the Scholars' College had approximately 300 this year. \ 
Morrison Hall has 18,800 square feet of space with 18 offices, while Russell Hall has 41,000 square feet with 39 
offices. 

Some Scholars' College students were angry about the change of plans, considering the renovated building 
was used as a recruiting tool for the fall semester, according to David Camburn. 

"I think this is a status symbol of where we [Scholars' College] stood with Northwestern," Sandy Schmied< 
a Scholars' College and business administration major, said. "Although, if I were on the Board of Trustees, I woul (J « 
have done the same thing considering the numbers." 

The issue of inadequate facilities for the Division of Business became a major concern of the university in

iTorts to gain accreditation from the American Association of 
•ollegiate Schools of Business. 

An accreditation team visited Northwestern in January 1996 
ad expressed in a report a "significant concern" that current physi- 
k\ facilities for the Division of Business were not conducive to pro- 
ding a positive learning environment. Burns said all of the accred- 
ation problems could be resolved by moving business to Russell 
all. 

"If it means that the business department will be accredited 
en I think it's a great move," Wesley Watkins, business major, said, 
believe that we should have priority over the Scholars' students 
jcause there are more business students." 

Morrison Hall is also in line for major renovations in the next 
vo years, according to Burns. "The proposal to renovate Morrison 
all is in Priority 3 of the state capital outlay program," Burns said. 
This means planning money should be available next year to mod- 
nize and refurbish the facility that will be used by the Scholars' 
ollege."

"The shuttle was started this semester on the initiative of

to class easier for them. 

"1 would ride the shuttle if it was rain- 
ing, and I could not find a parking spot and 
had to park at Turpin Stadium," John Hatley 
said. 

"Yes, I would ride it because it would 
take energy to walk," Hatley said. "So I do 
think it is a vital commodity to the 
University." 

The shuttle service began Sept. 23. At 
first, not many students took advantage of the 
bus, but it became more popular. 

"It has been doing real well," 
Lee Nugent, shuttle bus driver,

elected a full voting member of the University of 
Louisiana Board of Trustees. Carlton Downey, Student 
Government Association president, represented approxi- 
mately 101,000 college students. 

Downey, who was elected by his peers to the Board 
of Trustees, began his one-year term in September. 

"I am truly honored to represent the 101,000 stu- 
dents in the University of Louisiana system," Downey 
said. "I feel very fortunate to be a part of a situation where 
I can learn much and help out NSU at the same time." 

Downey was the college representative of the 10 
University of Louisiana colleges for the Board of Trustees. 
The Board of Trustees met once a month either in Baton 
Rouge or at one of the 10 college campuses it oversaw. 



According to Downey, the Board of Trustees 
addressed personnel changes, requests for money and 
degree offerings. 

To better represent Louisiana students, Downey 
met with a Student Advisory Committee, consisting of the 
other nine student government presidents, once every two 
months to obtain input and suggestions. 

Dr. James A. Caillier, the University of Louisiana 
System President, called Downey "a bright, articulate indi- 
vidual who will follow the tradition of former student 
board members in maintaining a strong voice for our stu- 
dents."

Faculty experiences 
shifts in positions 

During the summer preceding the 1996-1997 school year, many faculty expe- 
rienced a shift in their positions. 

Dr. Thomas Hanson was named acting dean of graduate studies and research, 
filling the position formerly held by Dr. Randy Webb, who became the university's 
president. 

Hanson, who has been at Northwestern since 1990, served as an associate pro- 
fessor of mathematics and director of information systems. He taught courses in 
mathematics, computer science and computer literacy. 

In the year preceding his advancement to dean, Hanson provided leadership in 
the planning and budgeting for all of Northwestern 's computer needs. He will serve as 
dean until a permanent successor is named. Northwestern will conduct a national 
search for the position. 

"Dr. Hanson is a very competent, knowledgeable individual with the leader- 
ship abilities to promote and continue the development of Northwestern 's graduate 
program," Dr. Thomas A. Burns, acting vice president for academic affairs, said. "His 
past experiences in higher education and with large corporations make him an excel- 
lent person for this position." 

Another change for the university came with the resignation of the director of 
the Louisiana Scholars' College, Dr. Ray Wallace, who assumed full-time teaching 
duties in the Department of Language and Communication at the beginning of the fall 
semester. Dr. Margaret Cochran succeeded Wallace as director. 

Wallace became director of the Scholars' College in 1993 after one year as 
head of the Department of Language and Communication. While at Scholars' College 
he worked to increase enrollment and retention as the state's designated honors col- 
lege in the liberal arts. 

"I am excited about my future at Northwestern," Wallace said. "It's time for 
me to step down from the Scholars' College and return to writing projects I have left 
too long on the back burner. I want to return to my first love, teaching writing, and let 
a new voice lead the Scholars' College. 

Also among the rearrangement of positions was the appointment of Dr. 
Thomas A. Burns as interim vice president for academic affairs. 

Burns, also a professor of biology, has been a member of Northwestern 's fac- 
ulty for 28 years and was head of the former Department of Life Sciences for 1 2 
years. 

"I have tremendous respect for Dr. Burns as a scholar and academic adminis- 
trator." Webb said. "He supports high academic standards and is very student-orient- 
ed. He will work closely and effectively with academic administrators and faculty in 
continuing to improve the quality of Northwestern 's academic programs and ser- 
vices."

are not separate; we are part of the university's mission." 

Cochran replaced Dr. Ray Wallace, who returned the Department of 
Language and Communication as a full-time professor of English. 

Despite the fact that her duties as acting director along with her duties as a 
professor took a large amount of her time, Cochran still managed to keep her focus 
on the students and on the future of the college. 

"We should be focused more on our students," Cochran said. "We should 
be placing more emphasis on their accomplishments and be centered more on giv- 
ing them more opportunities to succeed." 

One way Cochran accomplished this was by speaking with various depart- 
ment heads around campus about constructing joint programs that would give 
Scholars' College students more majors from which to choose. Although additional 
majors were still in the planning stages, Cochran was pleased with the ground- 
work. She hopes to establish a program for education majors in the future. 

"We are not separate," Cochran said. "We are part of the university's mis- 
sion. We may have a different idea or curriculum, but we are here for the same 
thing." 

The Scholars' College offers an honors degree program in fields such as 
accounting, business, English, mathematics and political science. 

Cochran had been a member 
of the Scholars' College faculty for 
three years as an assistant professor 
of mathematics. During these three 
years, she was active in the college's 
curriculum development. While on 
the curriculum committee, Cochran 
developed an upper-division mathe- 
matical modeling course for scientific 
inquiry students. She revised the core 
mathematics component, creating 
three new introductory courses and a 
new computer-assisted workshop for 

precalculus skills. Cochran also designed a two-semester introductory ecolog) 
sequence with lab and seminar as a life science option for the cure science require- 
ment. She also served as a freshman adviser, orientation director and faculty 
adviser to the Scholars' College Forum. 

Cochran earned a bachelor of science degree in the College Scholars 
Program, a liberal arts honor program at the University o\~ Tennessee at Knoxville. 
She went on to earn a master's degree in mathematics and a doctoral degree in 
ecology from Tennessee.

The Counseling and Career 
Services Office assists students throughout 
their academic careers. 

According to Jennifer Maggio, 
counselor and substance abuse coordinator, 
the counselors help students in all classifi- 
cations and alumni. Each student, however, 
goes through a different process depending 
on what the student needs. 

"We have a lot of techniques and 
instruments on campus to help freshmen 
decide a major if they don't already have 
one. If they do have a major in which they 
could do 500 things, such as business 
administration, then we help them narrow 
down a career within that major," Maggio 
said. 



70 



Maggio said the counselors also 
attempt to alleviate any stress that the stu- 
dent may have due to his or her indecisive- 
ness. 

The first step each student takes is 
to sit down with a counselor to assess their 
needs, and the counselor goes from there. 

"If students are about to graduate 
or they are looking for part-time work, 
then we sit down, discuss the student's 
needs and work towards a resume," 
Maggio said. "They must decide what kind 
of resume is going to get them the job that 
they want." The counselors then gather 
resources to send to potential employers. 

According to Maggio, students 
should go to the Counseling and Career 



Counseling and Career Services 



Services Office to develop a resume towards the end 
^f their junior year. This enables the counselor to see 
vhere the student is deficient and gives the student 
ime to join activities, do volunteer work, or whatever 
lse he or she needs to do in order to build his or her 
esume. 

"We also bring companies on campus so that 
he students can come in to interview without having 
o go some place far off," Maggio said. In order to 
larticipate in these interviews, the student completes 
n information form, which gives the counselor per- 
mission to get the student's transcripts and release his 
•r her file to the recruiters. 

Each week, fliers announcing who is coming 
oon are placed around campus and printed in the 
Current Sauce. Department heads are also asked to 
lake these announcements to their upper-level stu- 
lents. 



Mock interviews are also available for the stu- 
dents at any time, but they must be scheduled in 
advance. The interviews may be taped and watched 
afterwards, or the student may simply be interviewed 
and critiqued later. 

"The services offered by the Counseling and 
Career Services Office are offered at any point and 
time to NSU alumni," Maggio stressed. If alumni 
want the services offered, they must indicate so upon 
graduation. Then they will receive the Job Vacancy 
Newsletter for six months or until they indicate that 
they no longer need assistance.

What was it about Northwestern 
lat brought freshmen here? Why did 
ley choose NSU over other colleges 
ike LSU, the University of New 
)rleans, Florida State University or 
JLU? 

Was it the band? Was it the 
cholarships? Or was it the band schol- 
rships? 

According to several first semes- 
ix freshmen, Northwestern was No. 1 
ecause of the campus, the scholarships 
nd the programs of study. NSU was 
lso chosen for its "at-home" environ- 
lent. 

But once the freshmen got to 
-ISU, they faced the same problems faced by fresh- 
len all over the world. 

One of the biggest worries freshmen faced 
/hen moving to college was being treated like fresh- 
len. But the esprit de corps of the upperclassmen 
lade them feel welcome. 

After only a few weeks of class, many fresh- 
len hadn't formed an opinion of their professors and 
chedules yet, but one anonymous freshman said the 
rofessors should realize that a student's time is valu- 
ble. 

Still, others found a positive side to college 
lasses in that, occasionally, a class might get can- 
eled at the last minute. 

Dorm life, cafeteria food and parking prob- 
^ms were also at the top of the freshman complaint

She wasn't the only one with problemv 

Many of the freshmen listed noise, roommate 
conflicts, lack of space and community bathrooms as 
their pet peeves. 

One unanimous complaint concerned the "shot 
glasses" in Iberville. Freshmen wondered win the 
glasses were "kiddy" sized. 

But at least one freshman was pleased w ith the 
freshman cafeteria. 

"Iberville is really good and I love all the 
choices they offer." Jennifer I ord said.

Dr. Jean D'Amato, associate professor of 
classics, led 1 1 Northwestern/Scholars students 
to Naples and Rome for a three-week summer 
tour. 

The tour included sites of Cumae, Baiae, 
Isle of Capri, Naples, Pompeii, Herculaneum, 
Stabiae and Florence. 

"We really covered a lot of ground in the 
time we were there," Sam Woodruff, a scientific 
inquiry major, said. "The group covered two or 
three ancient sites a day. We moved at a high rate 
of speed to cover as much as possible." 

According to James McPherson, a senior 
at Scholars' College, the trip cost each student 
about $3,500, but it was well worth the money. 



"Rome was loud and crowded, but beautiful," 
he said. 

Woodruff said the group was fortunate to 
be led by a scholar of D'Amato s reputation. 

"It was a wonderful opportunity to study 
under someone who is such an expert on the 
area," Woodruff said. "We encountered groups 
from several universities while on the trip, and 
there was no doubt that we had the best experi- 
ence because of Dr. D'Amato 's knowledge of the 
country." 

The trip was not all fun. The students did 
some studying while they were in Italy. 
According to McPherson, the group met every 
morning with D'Amato to go over the day's

activities. Each day, they had to take notes on 
lectures of art, architecture and history. Each stu- 
dent took a comprehensive final which included 
essays. They had to keep diaries and take photos 
daily to document the trip. The class was struc- 
tured so that the students could teach the class if 
they were giving a tour in Rome. They earned 
three hours in art, and took another three hour 
guided study, again with D'Amato, on a topic of 
their choice which they had chosen in Rome. 

"I couldn't think of going with any other 
person," McPherson said. "Dr. D'Amato is great. 
She was unstoppable. She just kept on going." 

D'Amato constantly stressed to her stu- 
dents that traveling abroad would open their eyes 
to what other cultures considered "normal." "The 
cultures were a little different," he said. "Things 
closed daily from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. There was 
wine at every meal, even McDonald's."

ew faculty arrives 



The past year the faculty of 
Northwestern took on a new look. New 
faces were seen in several departments and 
at Watson Library. 

Richard Devault, new assistant pro- 
fessor of math, felt he could "give the uni- 
versity a very young and energetic professor 
who can thrill his students with the joy of 
mathematics." 

One new faculty member is no 
stranger to Northwestern. Dr. Lynn Woods 
taught at NSU before at the Fort Polk cam- 
pus and is currently working in the 
Department of Family and Consumer 
Sciences. She was hired as a hospitality, 
management and tourism professor. She felt 
she could "help the new program continue 
to grow and expand." One of her ventures to 
improve the department was a study trip to 
Europe. 

Patricia Threatt was hired as the spe- 
cial collections librarian, but she would 
rather be referred to as an archivist. She 
wished to "improve the archives and the use 
of them." 

The new faculty members came 
from universities such as the University 
of Texas at Arlington, George Mason 
University and the University of Rhode 
Island. 

Many of the new faculty mem- 
bers meshed well with their new depart- 
ments and felt that the departments ^™ 
influenced them to take the job offer. Bill 
Barnett, assistant professor of computer 
information systems, explained that the 
basic philosophy of the business department 
and teaching capabilities is what influenced 
him to take the job offer from Northwestern. 

Dr. Woods felt that she fit in well 
with the swing of things at NSU. "My col- 
leagues are wonderful, the department head 
is wonderful, the students are wonderful, 
too." 

Coming to Northwestern has been an 
experience for the new faculty members. 
"It's culture shock to move to a small town, 
but I find the people friendly," Dr. William 
Gorski, assistant professor of English, said .

If you were on or around campus this past summer, you probably had a burning question: What were all of those 
ids doing on campus? 

They were on campus for a fun, energetic and educational week of Camp Discovery. 

Camp Discovery is a fast-paced, hands-on learning experience in space science. During their week on campus, 
udents learned scientific ideas and principles and were able to train like astronauts. After students learned about the 
sponsibilities of an astronaut, they were then — , , — „ 

ble to participate in a simulated space mission. ^ A grandfather-grandson

ents feel like they were in space. 

Counselor Chad Averett said the footage 
le students used, which rotates in three-year 
itervals, was of the moon, Mars and a space 
:bit. These space missions were held in the 
SU Space Shuttle, Mission Control and Space 
tation Simulators. According to Averett, some 
udents return to Camp Discovery as many as 
ve times. 

A basic camp, advanced camp and a high 
:hool camp were all offered at the university 
is summer. The basic camp consisted of stu- 
nts, ages 9-14, who were experiencing Camp 
iscovery for the first time. The advanced camp 
udents had already taken the basic camp at 
ast once. The high school camp was for sm- 
arts ages 14-18. 

For these simulated space missions, the 
■ ivanced and high school groups helped write 
lit part of their scripts. According to Averett, 
is activity really made the students feel like 
irt of a team. 

The students who participated in Camp 
iscovery learned much more than aeronautical 
"inciples. They also learned how to work 
gether in the Galactic Challenge Ropes Course, 
'he course had ropes about 25 feet high, 
tudents not only had to trust each other, but 
iey also had to help each other to be able to 
omplete the course. 

Another program at Camp Discovery was 
lderhostel. Grandparents joined their grandchildren in the 9-14 age group for a week of camp. The grandparents partici- 
]ited in the missions and were offered tours of Natchitoches. "Some of the grandparents even completed the ropes 
ourse," Averett said. 

In addition to learning teamwork and going on simulated space missions, there were various dail) sessions Some 
f those sessions included learning about robotics, aviation, rocketry and neutral buoyancy. For the high school level, the 
butral buoyancy session included a SCUBA class in which Camp Discover) provided all necessarj equipment. There 
as also a paper airplane class with a demonstration of how a better built plane can H\ farther than a poorl) constructed

rising Center 




The needs of disabled students were 
realized and met at Northwestern, according 
to Janey Barnes, head of the Office of 
Services for Students with Disabilities. The 
number of disabled students has grown from 
three in 1992 to as many as 300 in 1996. 

Barnes and Facilities Coordinator W. 
K. Norman were among the staff working to 
make the campus completely accessible for 
handicapped students and pedestrians. A 
master plan was developed three years before 
as part of the effort and resulted in the con- 
struction of handicapped ramps at Sabine and 
Varnado Halls and the Teacher Education 
Center, along with new sidewalks from Roy 
Hall to Chaplin's Lake and Sabine Hall to 
Sibley Lake and at Greek Hill and married 
housing. 

"Northwestern has committed itself to 
this project and to date we have spent a total 
of $1.2 million to make these improvements," 
Norman said. 

Barnes developed this program for 
those who experience learning disabilities or 
have other special needs, such as particular 
classroom accommodations. 

"We really never dreamed this would 
happen. But, it has been my experience that 
the students enjoy it so much here because of 
the help we provide, ,, Barnes said. "When we 
look at how difficult it is just to get to class 
on time, I think we are pretty fortunate to 
have students with special conditions who 
want to come to Northwestern." 

Several changes were made to provide 
accessibility. Desk areas at various computer 
labs were adapted to accommodate wheel- 
chair students. A restroom in Dodd Hall was 
made suitable for handicapped residents with 
plans to convert three others. Eight desks 
were constructed for use by handicapped stu- 
dents in the classroom, and Boozman Hall 
was modified with desks in the dorm rooms 
compatible for wheelchair residents. 

Those in Barnes' office worked with 
students who had medical problems, learning 
needs and visual or physical impairments. 

"It is amazing just how many needs 
some of these students haver Barnes said. "I 



do feel like the students, especially those who are 
wheelchair bound, find it very accepting here at 
Northwestern. The professors work very well with 
us to accommodate the students. We do not have a 
perfect set-up on campus for our disabled, but the 
attention and welcome we give more than makes up 
for that," Barnes said. 

The center reaches more than those students 
with needs. It also houses the Academic Advising 
Program which provides services for freshman and 
general studies majors. Barnes said academic advis- 
ing had been stressed in the past, but it was not 
made mandatory until last spring. 

"We saw a significant increase in the number 
of students who took advantage of this policy once 
it was implemented," Barnes said. "We don't want 
students taking unnecessary classes, delaying their 
graduation date and wasting money. An adviser can 
see to it that they don't." 

"If a student has sought advisement, register- 
ing will be much easier for them. Their information 
will be entered into the computer in a matter of 
minutes. Plus these students will have priority when 
registering. Using an adviser can mean a major dif- 
ference in time thus the availability of a class," 
Barnes said. 

Barnes said that there are so many myths 
about the center. 

"The majority of students I work with who 
have learning disabilities are very intelligent. Many 
times they are our most brilliant students," Barnes 
said. 

"We get students in our office who have 4.0 
grade point averages who just want to maintain it. 
We see transfer students or those who can't decide 
what they want to major in. We spend a lot of time 
trying to help students succeed," Barnes said.

Selling Back Textbooks 





bookstores 




Larry Collins purchases 
his textbooks for the 
Spring semester at 
University Bookstore. 
Collins spent over $250 
for books, and will be 
lucky to receive $50 when 
selling them back at the 
end of the semester. 



Students constantly complained when they sold books back to the book- 
stores at the end of the semester. Most even blamed the stores when they didn't 
get much money back for their textbooks. 

Who's fault was it really? 

Sources at both bookstores said it was a combination of several things. 
Professors, publishers and the student body, along with poor communication 
among them, all contributed to the problem, Lee Waskom, owner of Campus 
Corner, said. 

The policy of book buying at both stores was that students would receive 
one-half the price they paid, whether they bought it new or used. 

This was unless the book was sold back before the end of a semester, in 
which case it was bought by the store for the wholesale price. 

Wholesale price was also given for a book when enough books had 
already been bought back to meet the needs of the teachers. 

For example, Waskom said, more English 1010 books were needed in the 
fall than in the spring because most freshmen take that class in the fall. 

Waskom also said sometimes two different wholesale guides offered two 
different prices for a book, but the store gave the higher amount to the student. 

"We try to give the student, as best we can, the better wholesale price," 
Waskom said. 

answer buyback questions ^^J^SZZ^, 

decided not to use the same 
books two or three semesters in a row or did not order the books they wanted for 
their classes on time, Jan Posey, University Bookstore manager, said. 

"Each semester, before the semester begins, we send a letter to the profes- 
sors, called an adoption letter, because they choose the books they are going to 
adopt for the next semester," Posey said. 

These letters were used to determine what books would be bought back 
and used again by other students. 

"The professor doesn't have to go with a new edition," Posey said. 

She added that most do in order to get updated information but that the 
publishers are at fault for making so many new editions. 

"It could be miscommunication sometimes," she said. 

The result of this miscommunication was higher costs for students. If a 
class used a new edition, a student only got the wholesale price for their old 
book instead of the half price he would have gotten if the book were used. 

The over 800 titles used by the University had about a 25 percent markup. 
Posey said, and only half of those were used for both fall and spring semesters. 
She added that the markup was small compared to that o\' most 
industries. 

Publishers like HarperCollins, however, charged higher prices for then- 
books because they made their money off the original sale to the stores and noth- 
ing off the resale. 

"They [the publishers] are trying to kill all the old editions." Waskom 
said. 

According to Waskom, the publishers did this so the) could come out 
with new editions and make more money. 

"They just take the chapters and reshuffle them," Waskom said, in refer- 
I ence to new editions. "Publishers have a monopoly." ^^^^^^ m Jeremy Ekberg

dealing with adversity 



Rhonette Ebert takes a minute 
to reflect during her day. 




student overcomes disability 



For the most part, Rhonette Ebert blended 
in with the other 9,000 students as they walked at 
a hurried pace to their classes on campus. 

The Campti native graduated with a gener- 
al studies degree on Dec. 20, taking as many as 
1 8 hours some semesters while maintaining close 
to a 3.0 GPA. 

Ebert's friends and her professors would 
have told you she always had a smile on her face. 
Even when there were days she could hardly find 
something worth smiling about. They would also 
tell you that even her blindness did not slow her 
down. 

Ebert was born with glaucoma. She was 
blind at birth. The small amount of vision she has 
helped only to orientate her with her surround- 
ings, which was what made her story of college 
survival so amazing. 

"I haven't run into difficulties on campus 



because of my blindness, but, rather because of 
equipment and book problems," Ebert said, who 
had to laugh when she recalled her first semester 
on campus. She and Janey Barnes, American with 
Disabilities Act Coordinator, "guessed at what 
they were doing," she said. 

"Rhonette was my first student who was 
blind," Barnes said. "When she enrolled at 
Northwestern in the fall of 1992, there were no 
books in Braille and no equipment for the visually 
impaired." Barnes said it was impossible to get 
textbooks in Braille because of the extensive time 
required for a textbook to be Brailled. 

Ebert and Barnes devised a way for her to 
learn and study just as her classmates were doing. 
"I would record the lectures and then take the lec- 
tures home and type them out on my computer 
and print them on my Braille printer," Ebert said. 
"If there was any required text reading, my mom 



80 



Rhonette Ebert 



would do that and then type the notes and print them 
for me. My parents have been wonderful." 

But, just as Ebert and Barnes mastered one 
task, there were always others waiting around the 
corner. For instance, tests posed an interesting prob- 
lem. "Either myself or her willing professors had to 
give her tests orally and in just about any spot that 
was available," Barnes said. "Needless to say we 
have had some fun tests." 

"I have taken tests everywhere," Ebert said. 
"In broom closets, on steps, anywhere." 

At times like that, when it probably would 
have been easier, Ebert never seriously considered 
quitting school. "It was tempting to push it aside, 
but I just continued pushing myself as I always 
have." 

Barnes and Ebert, sitting side by side, took a 
sigh of relief when looking back at their first semes- 
ter together. "It was definitely trial and error, and 
more error than anything," Barnes said. 

"But, we made it through it," Ebert said. 
Through some really tough classes, Ebert admitted. 
Algebra was especially hard, but said she had a great 
tutor. 

"Passing algebra was my greatest accom- 
plishment," Ebert said. "Have you ever had to pic- 
ture in your mind an algebraic equation and then 
rely on someone to walk you through a problem? It 
was tough." 

Barnes said Ebert had a good sense of what 
she had to do to survive. "In other words, she is 
good at sensing problem areas and avoiding them." 
Ebert refused to walk with a cane, in fact, she didn't 
even own one. Amazingly, she could count the num- 
ber of times she fell on campus on her left hand. 
Sometimes traffic was a problem but, as always, she 
took it in stride. "I've never had a bad experience 
and people are really helpful. They see me coming 
and know I may ask them for an arm in order to 
cross the road." What most people wouldn't think 
twice about, like notes on a door informing students 
of class changes, meant big challenges for Ebert. 
"But, again, students and professors almost always 
are willing to show me the way." 

"Not only do I admire Rhonette, but I also 
have a great deal of respect for her parents," Barnes 
said. "In the four years we've been working together, 
they never have expressed anger or frustration over 
things we could not supply their daughter. They 
knew I was trying to get her everything I could to 



make her life more pleasant." 

Many people on campus admired Ebert. 
"Rhonette is an inspiration to anyone who has 
some obstacles to overcome," Dr. Bill Swain, jour- 
nalism professor, said. "She never once asked for 
special privileges. Having had Rhonette in class, 
she brought a very positive outlook to everything 
in life and to me. I enjoyed and appreciated teach- 
ing her." What Ebert gave Swain, Swain gave back 
to her. 

"He would record my tests on his own time 
with a voice recorder and then he would allow me 
to take it in his office rather than in a corner 
somewhere," Ebert said. 

Ebert said maintaining her good attitude 
was a result of the influence of her parents, Wade 
and Rhonda, and one of her preschool teachers, 
Mary Ann Froeba-Richard. "Mrs. Froeba taught 
me from the time I was four years old until I was 
in the sixth grade. She came out of retirement to 
teach me again in the ninth grade through my 
senior year. It was incredible to me that she would 
do that." 

"It was no sacrifice coming back to teach 
Rhonette, in fact, it was a delight," Froeba- 
Richard said. "She is the kind of person that just 
keeps on keepin' on. She is a marvelous person. 
Her sense of humor is wonderful and it was worth 
it each day getting up to come to work just to 
laugh with her. She is a treasure." 

"Mrs. Froeba was a good, strong influence 
on me always telling me I could do something 
rather than I could not," Ebert said. "Janey has 
been my 'Mrs. Froeba' for the last four years."

journalism receives accreditation 



The Journalism Department received provision- 
al accreditation in October 1996 from the Accreditation 
Council on Education in Journalism and Mass 
Communications, AEJMC. 

A three member accreditation team from the 
council visited the department Oct. 13-16. The team 
consisted of Elliot Brack, reporter from the Atlanta 
Constitution, Dr. Dan Lattimore, chair of the 
University of Memphis Department of Journalism, and 
Dr. Erna Smith, chair of the San Francisco University 
Department of Journalism. 

The AEJMC was the only accrediting body in 
the journalism field. 



According to Dr. Ron McBride, head of the 
Journalism Department, becoming accredited was diffi- 
cult. Only 20 percent of all journalism programs in the 
United States were accredited. 

"That means only one in every five schools is 
accredited," McBride said. "Being accredited is very 
prestigious." 

Although most of the work for accreditation was 
done during 1 995 and 1 996, preparation began five 
years ago. 

A self-study was held last year, in which a 12- 
point standard review of the department was conducted. 
Following the self-study, the team from AEJMC was

;ent to confirm that Northwestern had fulfilled the 12 
.tandards. 

While the team visited, they met with members 
>f the faculty, administration and students. Touring 
:lasses, inspecting equipment and facilities and inter- 
dewing students allowed the team to examine the 
trengths and weaknesses of the department. 

"The members of the journalism review team 
arefully examined all areas of our program and made 
lelpful suggestions for improvement," President 
landall J. Webb said. "My impression from talking to 
hem is that they feel we have a journalism program of 
[uality that we need to promote widely. This is a credit 
o the leadership of Dr. Ron McBride and his fine fac- 
ilty and staff. It is further evidence that Northwestern 's 
mployees and students are exceptional people of 
vhom I am very proud." 

Student involvement was a large part of the 
ccreditation process. The AEJMC team met with 
pproximately 25 students to ask their opinions pertain- 
ng to every aspect of the Journalism Department. 

Dr. Bill Swain, journalism professor, appreciated 
tie students' realization that this was an important visit. 

"I especially appreciate the contribution of the 
tudents to the process," Swain said. 

Some of the strengths of the department were 
isted as excellent facilities, good minority representa- 
ion and a good rapport between students and faculty. 
^EJMC did not recommend that department weakness- 
s become publicized, just corrected. 

In their report, review team members said that 
few programs across the country are blessed with the 
cope and quality of broadcast equipment this program 
as. The overall program benefits tremendously from 
xcellent facilities and a state of the art, virtually new 
^chnological environment." 

According to McBride, the designation saved 
le journalism program from termination. A team of 
onsultants hired by the State Board of Regents had 
scommended that the journalism program be terminat- 
d if it did not gain accreditation. 

Preliminary accreditation was granted with the 
■rovision that minor changes be made within one cal- 
ndar year. At that time, Lattimore would return to ver- 
fy that the deficiencies were corrected. 

"The team indicated that our program has 
-emendous potential," McBride said. "Accreditation 
uts us in an elite group. It adds prestige to our pro- 
;ram and will help us in recruiting new students, facul- 
y and staff. It will also help our students gain employ- 



ment after graduation because employers know that our 
program follows a set of national standards that we 
measure ourselves against every day." 

"The prospect of full accreditation is both excit- 
ing and beneficial for Northwestern," Tatum Lyles, a 
sophomore journalism major, said. "I hope we can 
maintain our accreditation status. I would be proud to 
say that I graduated from NSU either way, but I would 
prefer to be from one of the select few schools that can 
claim this illustrious honor."

regents cut 3 programs 



Annette LeMoine works on a 
report in the Teacher Education 
Center. An Educational 
Technology doctoral candidate, 
Lemoine will finish her degree 
before its extinction. 



The State Board of Regents eliminated three academic programs in the fall. 

The regents voted to cut the doctoral program in educational technology, the master's 
program in business administration and the associate degree program in computer technology. 

After studies conducted by out-of-state consultants hired by the Regents, 1 3 academic 
programs were originally targeted for elimination. The consultants evaluated more than 500 
undergraduate and graduate programs at all public institutions of higher learning in Louisiana. 

The University saved 12 programs in danger of termination, including a specialist degree 
in educational leadership and instruction and educational technology and master's programs in 
psychology, student personnel services, health and physical education, music and art. 
Bachelor's programs in hospitality management and tourism, industrial technology and journal- 
ism will continue. With provisional accreditation from the Accrediting Council of Education in 
Journalism and Mass Communication in October, the journalism program was retained. 

"We are very pleased with the overall outcome of the process," President Randy Webb 
said. "Northwestern has strong academic programs that are serving our students and the entire 
state of Louisiana very well, and we are glad that was recognized." 

Webb explained that the program eliminations will lower degree programs offered to 49, 
which is one of the lowest numbers offered by other state universities and that "proportionally 
more programs have been eliminated from Northwestern than at any other public four-year uni- 
versity in Louisiana." 

Officials agreed with the consultants; decision to eliminate the MBA program which 
was targeted toward business executives in the Alexandria area. 



84 



Program Cuts 



"There were not sufficient resources to operate a high-quality master's program," Dr. Barry Smiley, Division 
>f Business director, said. "Eliminating the program will allow us to concentrate on our undergraduate program. We 
vant to have a nationally competitive faculty that produces students that will be successful in business and indus- 

Although the consulting team praised the quality of the doctoral program in educational technology, the 
legents elected to follow the recommendation to cut that program. 

"We are optimistic that Northwestern will be able to play a role in offering more advanced degrees in educa- 
ion in the near future," Webb said. 

All students enrolled in programs scheduled to be eliminated were allowed to finish. 

"It was evident that the Regents wanted to be supportive of programs throughout the state," Webb said. "We 
appreciate their hard work and diligence and hope that the review process can be beneficial for the state in the long 
un."

university maintains 
SACS accreditation 



The University received reaffirmation of its accreditation from the 
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in December 1996. 
The reaffirmation came after two and a half years of work by 
Northwestern faculty and staff who critically examined every aspect of univer- 
sity operations to identify strengths and weaknesses. 

The self-study was chaired by Dr. Virginia Crossno, director of university 
planning and assessment. President Randy Webb chaired the Self-Study 
Steering Committee while he was dean of instruction and graduate studies. 
"The reaffirmation of Northwestern State University's accreditation by the 
Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools ensures the public that we meet 
:stablished standards of quality in programs and services provided by the university," Webb said. 

"Accreditation signifies that Northwestern has a purpose appropriate to higher education and has resources, 
>rograms and services sufficient to accomplish its purpose on a continuing basis. This is a reflection of quality and 
t speaks especially well of the people at Northwestern-our faculty, staff and administrators as well as the caliber of 
tudents who attend here," Webb said. 

Northwestern has been an accredited institution since 1923. 

"Accreditation gives the University increased credibility among peer institutions and to the general public." 
>ossno said. "It provides a measure of quality and shows that the institution has satisfied numerous performance 
ndicators." 

Five major areas for reaffirmation established by SACS, Institutional Purpose, Institutional Effectiveness, 
Educational Program, Educational Support Services and Administrative Processes, were met by the University, reaff- 
irming the University's accreditation. According to Crossno, the most important area was Institutional 
Effectiveness. 

"Institutional Effectiveness is the thread which runs throughout the entire process," Crossno said. "The 
Southern Association is at the forefront of the movement to improve the quality of accreditation. One way to do that 
s to ensure that colleges and universities have plans in place to see if they are doing what they sa\ the) are doing.* 1 
According to Crossno, the self-study examined every aspect of the University against criteria established b\ 
>ACS. The process led to a number of recommendations to improve Northwestern overall.

student support services provides tutoring, counseling 



At one time or another during the semester, 
students needed help with their assignments, and 
many turned to various tutoring services on cam- 
pus for answers. 

Student Support Services, located near the 
infirmary, helped about 50 students a week, which 
included a large number of freshmen. 

"We tutor for math, English, biology, chem- 
istry, psychology, physics, history, foreign lan- 
guages. ..a little bit of everything," Christi Martin, 
tutor coordinator, said. "We do most of the general 
areas that students are getting for their core class- 
es." 

Funding was provided by a federal grant 



which allows low-income, first generation and 
handicapped students to be assisted, though ser- 
vices were never denied to students in need. 

"When they come in here, we do one-hour 
tutoring sessions one-on-one," Martin said. 
"Students like the individual tutoring we do here." 

"Last semester, I was having trouble with 
French, so I came in, and it was very helpful," 
Teofilo Alvarado said. 

There were three staff counselors on hand 
to help students with academic study skills, time 
management and test anxiety. 

Student Support Services accommodated 
students from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday 



86 



Student Support Services 



through Friday. 

Students also could use the Center for 
Academic Advising Services for Students with 
Disabilities located on the third floor of Watson 
Library. 

This center handled advising for freshmen 
and students with disabilities, like dyslexia, but it 
also serviced students with a need for help, reme- 
dial or otherwise. "Typically, there's someone here 
to help, but if not, we can usually work something 
out for the very next day," Glynn Guynes, tutor 
coordinator, said. 

This center was open from 8 a.m. until 8:30 
p.m. Specialized help could also be received by 



students. Departments usually provided labs and 
tutors to assist in specific areas. There were athlet- 
ics tutors, a math lab, a foreign language lab and a 
writing center. 

A variety of sources were available to stu- 
dents in need of academic help, though many indi- 
viduals involved felt that tutoring services should 
be consolidated on campus to better accommodate 
students. 

"We're very interested in expanding tutor- 
ing services, but we need a center," Don Barker, 
Student Support Services director, said. 

Sara Farrell 



Certficate of Intent should ensure class openings for 
students, not make life more difficult 



An enormous amount of students register- 
ing early for the spring semester were bewil- 
dered about a policy possibly obligating them to 
pay all fees associated with registration even if 
they do not attend school next semester. 

This policy, called the Certification of 
Intent, was instituted to ensure an obligation to 
pay registration fees unless students properly 
resigned from the University. "They [the stu- 
dents] must look at the schedule of classes," Bell 
stated. "We include all registration policies in 
there and you have to cancel your registration 
before the first day of classes. If you wait until 
the first day of class [to resign] you will be 
' charged 10 percent [of your total fees]." 

The change was strategically planned 
before its implementation. "What I'm trying to 
do is to clean up the schedule and cancel regis- 
tration for the students who are not planning to 
return to NSU," Lillie Frazier Bell, acting regis- 
trar, said. "This way we will free the sections for 
high demanding classes." 

The intent form was sent to students' local 
addresses. The students signed and returned to 
the Registrar's Office by Dec. 13 at 4:30 p.m. By 
returning this form, classes were guaranteed to 
the students and NSU was guaranteed that the 
students would be returning next semester. 

"We are requiring you to return it [the 



Certification of Intent] to us so we can hold your 
classes and you are assuring us that 'yes I do 
want these classes and please do not cancel my 
registration'" Bell said. 

If a student did not return the intent form 
reservations were canceled. They had to re-regis- 
ter during regular registration in January. The 
main reason this policy was adopted was 
because of the enormous amount of people fail- 
ing to resign once the semester had begun. 

"We would send out thousands of letters 
to students asking, 'are you attending, are you 
not attending'," Bell said. "We would get a lot of 
letters back from people not attending. There 
were a lot of classes we would have to go in and 
cancel registration for. The problem with this 
was that it was too late for the students who 
were attending school this semester to register 
for those classes." 

Many students thought this policy would 
benefit the University but felt it should have 
been explained more thoroughly. "They [the 
University] need to explain the policy in more 
detail." Kim Linscomb. an education major said. 
"I thought you were automatically obligated to 
pay after you signed the intent form. I think it is 
a £ool\ thing because it is gi\ ing other people the 
opportunity to get into the classes the) need.*'

BURKE RETURNS 

Greg Burke returned to Northwestern in the fall as the new athletic director, replacing Tynes 
E-Iildebrand, who held the position since 1982. 

From 1986-92, Burke served as the university's first athletic fundraiser. As a result of this posi- 
:ion, Burke helped in developing Northwestern 's Athletic Association from scratch into a booster group 
with a membership of nearly 1 ,000 people throughout the country. 

As athletic fundraiser, he established a scholarship endowment and planned giving programs, 
ind he implemented the first "Team Drive" and game-day sponsorship programs. 

In 1989, Burke initiated the biannual "Scholarship Auction," a program that has generated 
ilmost $150,000 to cover scholarship expenses for student-athletes. Burke also established the "Joe 
Delaney Memorial" celebrity golf tournament and developed the Demon Sports Network for coverage 
:>f football and basketball, as well as expanded the "Demon Wheels" Courtesy Car program. 

However, in 1992, Burke was hired as director of athletic development and marketing at the 
University of Akron. 

While at the University of Akron, Burke oversaw all fund raising functions of the athletic pro- 
gram, including marketing and promotions, ticket sales and sponsorships. In addition, he coordinated 
he university's annual fund drive through telemarketing and direct mail solicitations, resulting in over 
19,730 gifts and record phonathon pledges and dollars being raised. 

When the position for athletic director opened up, Burke was recommended to President Randy 
Webb by the Northwestern Athletic Council following a six-week long nation-wide search. Burke 
iccepted, and he was he was introduced as the new athletic director on Aug. 8, 1996. 

"Greg's departure is going to leave a big hole at Akron. I have been here for two and a half years 
md, in fact, Greg was on of the main reasons I took the job," Mike Bobinski, director of athletics at 
A.kron said. "The more responsibility we gave him, the better job he did. He has left us in much better 
shape for the future." 

As Burke settled into his position as athletic director, he outlined several goals he wanted to 
iccomplish during his tenure at Northwestern. First and foremost on his list was to see a high gradua- 
tion rate of all student-athletes, to help market the University through the use of athletics and to win 
:he Southland Conference All-Sports Trophy. 

In addition, Burke said he wanted to build a higher awareness for the athletic program to help 
narket both athletics and the University. "We need to create a higher awareness for both the teams and 
student-athletes on campus, in Natchitoches and in the northwestern part of the state," Burke said. He 
:ontinued by saying that athletics is one of the most visible marketing tools a university has. 

Burke also stated that there would be no immediate coaching changes until he had time to eval- 
uate them on his own. "I don't want to take anyone else's word, I want to be able to evaluate them on 
my own," he said. 

With these plans, Burke made a big impression on the coaches, staff and student — athletes. 

"Greg is supportive of the coaches in providing resources for their programs." J.D. Barnett, head 
men's basketball team coach, said. 

"He is someone who leads by example and who sees his role as one o\' pro\ iding support an) 
way possible for student-athletes and their coaches," Doug Ireland, director of sports information said. 
'We are going to succeed with Greg Burke as our Athletic Director." 

"Northwestern could not hire anyone that would provide a better day's work than Greg," 
Hildebrand said. "He will be a leader by example for a young athletic staff He will give everything 
he's got to make the athletic department and Northwestern a success and he will o\o it the right way. I le 
is that type person."

TRIUMPHS & FALLS

Yo.. .Three straight wins to open the 1996 football season, including a win over a 
nationally-ranked team that traditionally gives Northwestern f its... Yo... consecutive losses to 
teams without winning records... Yo... up... Yo... down. 

No doubt about it, the 1996 Northwestern Demon football team took its faithful fol- 
lowing on a stomach-churning, boo-screaming, hand-clapping rollercoaster ride in a season 
filled with close-calls and breakthrough moments, thrashing teams it was supposed to thrash, 
and faltering against teams it had no business losing to. 

The season kicked off the same way it had the past three years, with a matchup against 
traditional thorn-in-the-side Southern University, the team owning a 3-0 record in season 
openers against the Demons. With both teams returning only a few starters, the only thing 
certain was the Jaguar's Division I-AA, No. 12 national ranking. Northwestern would only 
need one game to throw doubt on that too; however, as the Demons defeated the Jaguars 27- 
10 before a record Turpin Stadium crowd of 16,222. Warren Patterson, starting his first game 
at quarterback, hit receiver Pat Palmer with two long passes of 77 and 25 yards, and 
Northwestern held the high-octane Southern offense to 128 yards. The Demons ripped the 
Jaguar defense for 499 yards, with tailback Anthony Williams rushing for a career-high 154 
yards on 25 carries. 

Next in line for the 1-0 Demons was a familiar foe with an unfamiliar name. East 
Texas State (2-0) was on its way to Natchitoches; only this time as Texas A&M-Commerce. 
Northwestern wasn't concerned with the name as it pummeled the Lions, ranked No. 4 in 
NCAA Division II, 33-7 behind 224 yards on Patterson's solid 10-19 throwing. After scoring 
a 79 yard-touchdown on the opening possession, the Lions were trampled under a 33-point 
rush from the Demons, who amassed 533 total yards. Williams tallied his second straight 
100-yard rushing game with 138 yards on 22 carries. 

Coach Sam Goodwin was confident in his team's ability to win its first two games, but 



Football 



was surprised at the domination: "I thought we could win these two games coming in to the sea- 
son," he said. "But I didn't think we would win them this convincingly." 

This confidence would be a great boost to the team when it traveled to Idaho to face the 
newly christened Division I-A Boise State. With several great defensive plays led by Clint 
Loggins' nine tackles, the Demons edged past the Broncos 20-16. Although the Demons (3-0) 
gave up 463 total yards to the Broncos, they made defensive stands when it counted. Damion 
Brown had a sack at the Demon's 4th yard line, and Loggins got in on successive stops on third 
and fourth downs inside the one at the end of the first half, part of the work that won the nose 
tackle the Louisiana "Defensive Player of the Week" award. 

The 1 9th-ranked Demons next test awaited in Monroe in the form of rival Northeast 
Louisiana (2-3), their second Division 1-A foe of the season. After being

held scoreless the entire game by a stingy Northwestern defense, the Indians exploded 
for two touchdowns in the final 7:10 to overcome a 10-0 deficit for the come-from- 
behind victory. After scoring their first touchdown of the game after a 95-yard drive, the 
Demons were stopped on fourth-and-one. With 15 seconds remaining, Indian quarterback 
Raymond Philyaw connected with Marty Booker on a 2-yard pass for the winning score, 
striking the first blemish on Northwestern 's record, now 3-1. The back-breaking loss was 
a bitter bill for Goodwin to swallow. "This game is one of the toughest losses I have been 
associated with," he said. "It ranks right up there with the Hail Mary loss to Northeast in 
1987." 

The Demons would try to regroup, again away from the friendly confines of 
Turpin Stadium, when they traveled to Thibodaux to face Nicholls State in the conference 
opener for Northwestern, still ranked 19th. Northwestern, ranked first in scoring defense, 
rushing offense, and total offense was aiming to improve upon Coach Goodwin's 11-1 
record in conference openers. The hometown Colonels would not give the Demons that 
opportunity; however, as they edged the visitors 19-17, again in come-from-behind fash- 
ion, a precursor to the SLC Championship the Colonels would earn. Nicholls stopped 
Northwestern (3-2, 0-1) a half-yard shy of a game-clinching first down, forcing a punt 
with 1:50 left which the Colonels blocked to set up a game-winning 37-yard field goal 
with 16 seconds remaining. 

"Two in a row like that will really test your mettle," he said. "I think the fourth 
quarter at Northeast really shook our confidence level, and we were on shaky ground for 



94 



Football 



the first three quarters at Nicholls." 

Despite the second-straight loss, the Demons still car- 
ried a No. 22 ranking, heading into a Homecoming date with 
Sam Houston State (2-4, 1-0). Northwestern shredded the 
Bearkats for a school-record 603 yards en route to a 38-21 
SLC victory. Northwestern got 1 00-yard rushing perfor- 
mances from tailbacks Anthony Williams (119 yards and 
two touchdowns) and Brian Jacquet (110 yards and one 
touchdown). Quarterback Warren Patterson ran for 84 
yards and threw for 212 yards more, with receiver Pat 
Palmer on the end of most of those with 196 all-purpose 
yards, catching five passes for 165 yards and two touch- 
downs. The victory moved Northwestern to 4-2 overall, 1-1 
SLC. Goodwin denied changing his game plan. "It wasn't so much 
that we made any adjustments," he said. "We just stopped messing 
up. We made enough mistakes to get beat in a lot of games. To over 
come that bad stretch speaks well of this group." 

With the Homecoming win, the Demons moved 
up three spots to No. 19 in the latest I-AA poll. That in 
hand, Northwestern found itself up north to face defen- 
sive-minded Youngstown State (5-2). The perennial-power 
Penguins showed the Demons a little of their tradition as 
they staked a 1 7-0 half-time advantage and held on for a 24- 
14 victory, dropping Northwestern to 4-3, 1-0. The Demons 
were shackled by poor field position the entire first half, and 
their 14-point third quarter outburst wasn't enough to over- 
come Youngstown State. The Demons' average field position in 
their first four possessions was their own 13-yard-line. "We got 
in a hole and just couldn't recover," Goodwin said. "When a team 
that relies on a ball-control offense gets a 17-0 lead, it's extremely 
hard to overcome. We were hemmed up for most of the 
first half and they took advantage." 

Next up for the No. 22 Demons was 3-4, 0-2 
Southwest Texas State. Northwestern proved to be an 
ungracious guest, never even allowing the Bobcats to 
run a single play on the Demon end of the field, en 
route to amassing 474 yards to 1 1 7 in destroying 
Southwest Texas State 49-0. In the victory, Anthony 
Williams rushed for 162 yards on a mere 17 carries in 
earning the Southland Conference's "Offensive Player 
of the Week." Goodwin hoped that the overpowering 
performance was an accurate measure of his team's true 
potential. "It was a pretty impressive performance 
against a very solid opponent," he said. "I hope we're that good."

The next opponent for the No. 19 Demons (5-3, 2-1 ) was to be a true test of their met- 
tle: No. 5 power and Southland Conference newcomer Troy State (7-1, 3-1). 
It was also a must-win for a team looking for a conference cham- 
pionship and a play-off berth. The Trojans put a kink in 
the Demons' plans for both as they waltzed in and 
out of Natchitoches with a deceptively easy 26-13 
win. Fullback Joe Johnson ran for two touchdowns 
on Troy State's first two possessions and never 
looked back in taking the victory. Injuries to first and 
second-string quarterbacks didn't help Northwestern 's 
cause as both Warren Patterson and Brandon Emanuel 
were shuffled in — and — out of the lineup with a muscle 
pull and ankle injury, respectively. 

McNeese State (2-7, 0-4) was the last home oppo 
nent of the season for No. 25 Northwestern and has been 
one of their most elusive conference opponents as they have 
taken the last four games from the Demons (5-4, 2-2). The 
Cowboys' record may have led many to believe they were not 

the same team that was ranked No. 1 almost the entire previous season, but McNeese man- 
aged to snap out of their doldrums long enough to pound the stunned Demons 20-3 winning 
its first league game of the season and holding Northwestern without a touchdown for the 
first time in 3 1 games. Again, injuries played havoc with the Demons as inexperienced third- 
string quarterback Mark Gibson was thrust unexpectedly into the critical position. The 
Cowboys' Derrick Beavers ran for 1 1 1 yards, including a 36-yard touchdown that helped 
clinch the victory. 

With the Cowboys' having effectively destroyed Northwestern 's hope for a playoff bid 
the only thing the Demons really had to play for in their season finale against 14th-ranked 
Stephen F. Austin was pride and the desire to bring home Chief Caddo after a four-year hia- 
tus in Nacogdoches. Although stifled on offense the entire game and turning the ball over 
five times, the Demons' defense stepped up in limiting a Lumberjack offense averaging 30 
points and 398 yards per game to a mere 209 total yards and 1 1 first downs in a 17-10 victo- 
ry. Included in the defensive effort for Northwestern, who finished its season at 6-5. 
was a crucial goalline stand with eight minutes left, stuffing four 
straight SFA (6-5) dive plays. 

Although the season didn't end quite the way 
$ Demon players and fans were hoping, the campaign 
m was certainly exciting. Perhaps coincidentally, it also 
f seemed as if Northwestern fans were really starting to 
get behind their team, with increases in attendance and 
crowd noise, and purple-and-white banners seen flutter- 
* ing around campus as each game drew near. With the 
continued hard work and dedication of the Northwestern 
football organization, maybe next year those banners will 
be flying in December.

Although Demons fall short of expectations, Goodwin still 

LOOKING AHEAD 

The Demons finished the 1996 football campaign at 6-5, and coach Sam Goodwin is optimistic about 
next year's squad. 

The Demon football team started the 1996 season with its back against the wall. According to 
Goodwin, it only returned six starters from the previous season, and the team was playing one of the toughest 
schedules in the nation. The Demon quarterback had little experience, and the defense was young. Considerinj 
all of that, one would think the Demons would be content with finishing the season with a 6-5 record, but the) 
felt they missed an opportunity to do a lot more. 

The Demons went 3-0 for the first time since 1980 and, with two more fourth quarter conversions on 
third downs, they could've been 6-0 for the first time since 1966. The squad let the game against Northeast 
slip from their fingers when they failed to convert on a fourth down with 1:25 left to play in the 
fourth quarter. The Indians took the ball and drove 68 yards with no time outs remaining to score the game- 
winning touchdown. 

It was virtually the same scenario the following week against Nicholls State. The Colonels blocked 
Shane Barbara's punt with 1:43 left in the fourth quarter. 

"If we get the punt off, we win the game," Goodwin said, but instead Nicholls State recovered the 
blocked punt on the Demon's 23 yard line and kicked a field goal to win the game with time expiring. 

"Those two games would have put us at 6-0, and one can only imagine what could have happened fron 
there," Goodwin said. He felt that was the turning point in the season since the team never got back on track, 
playing well one week and poor the next. The Demons still had a chance to make the playoffs until both quar^ 
terbacks were injured against Troy State. "If Patterson or Emanuel stayed healthy we still had a chance, but 
with those two injured we could not do anything offensively," Goodwin said. 



Football 



The Demons finished the 
'ear as the only team in the 
iouthland Conference to average 
•ver 400 yards a game in total 
•flense, which gives the Demons a 
3t of optimism for next season. 

The Demons will be return- 
tig 12 starters next season as 
pposed to only six this year. One of 
lose will be starting quarterback 
Varren Patterson, who has almost 
lastered the offense, according to 
joodwin. The Southland "Player of 
'he Year," Pat Palmer, will also be 
^turning at wide receiver. "Pat had 
phenomenal year, and I think 
Varren [Patterson] is the guy who 
an take us to the national champi- 
nship," Goodwin said. 

His biggest concern is that 
atterson is injury prone and has 
•ouble playing hurt. The Demon 
ffensive line will have to fill some 
aps left by seniors, but according to 
ioodwin they have the personnel to 

that. Goodwin feels he has a 
trong defense returning, and the 
ardest player to replace will be 
leith Thibodeaux. 

"Defensively we lost some 
ey players, but a lot of people got 
) play this year. I think we will be 

1 good shape," Goodwin said. 

The Demons will be strong 
t defensive end with the return of 
jam sack leader Mario Sanchez and 
t linebacker with Jake Michel and 
)errick Fields. Goodwin is looking 
n I-A transfers Kenny Wright from 
irkansas and Alja Delaney from 
ouisiana State University to be big- 
me players for the Demons in the 
;condary. He also feels the Demons 
'ill have a consistent kicking game 
ext season, something they lacked 
l years passed. 

"It will be hard to replace the 
;adership and enthusiasm our 
sniors gave us this year, they were 
"ally a great bunch," Goodwin said.

Judge Richard Ware 
1996 



Demon Football 
Loses Its Voice 

Richard N. Ware IV a 
Northwestern graduate and 39th 
Judicial District Judge, died Aug. 
31, 1996, in a one- car accident six 
miles east of Coushatta. Before 
Ware died, he was to begin his 1 8th 
season as color analyst on radio 
broadcast of the Demons football 
games. 

Ware, 47, was the incoming 
president of the Louisiana District 
Judge of Associations. 

Ware was elected to the 39th 
Judicial District after winning in an 
unusual way. In 1 982 he won by one vote over his opponent and was unop- 
posed for his next two terms. He would have began his fourth term this fall. 

Judge Ware received numerous awards during his lifetime. He 
received the Commissioner Award in 1994 for his work advocating the pre- 
vention of child abuse. In dedication to his works for this cause, his family 
requested donations to the Richard Ware Foundation for the Children of Red 
River Parish. 

West Monroe was Ware's hometown where he won the All Gulf-State 
Conference recognition and was the league's Most Valuable Back as a senior. 
He graduated from West Monroe and came to Northwestern to further his 
education and football career. 

Ware became a star athlete on the football team. He was the lead-in 
rushing in 1969 and 1970. "I didn't make any if those yards without a lot of 
good help," Ware said in a 1994 interview. "There was some great blocking, 
and I happened to be the guy with the ball." 

In 1970 he was voted permanent team captain and was crowned "Mr. 
NSU" that same year. In 1984 he graduated and was elected to the "N" Club 
hall of Fame for his outstanding athletic achievements. 

"Richard was a good as friend as you could hope to have, and as true 
a Northwestern Demon as there will ever be," Coach Sam Goodwin said. 
"Everybody who met him loved the guy." 

He was an active member in Northwestern's athletic and alumni 
activities while he practiced law in Natchitoches before becoming a district 
judge. 

"Richard Ware was a wonderful ambassador for Northwestern.'" 
Northwestern President Randy Webb said. "He bettered the lives of thousands 
of young people through his extensive civic involvement, and brightened the 
lives of everyone met. This is a tragic loss for our University and the entire 
state of Louisiana." 

He was indeed a proud alumni of Northwestern. In his honor, the 
Richard Ware Fullback Scholarship Endorsement was created to ensure his 
honors and life will be remembered. His scholarship will be awarded, starting 
1997, at the beginning of each year. 

There is no better way to remember this man at Northwestern, who 
loved this school so much. "Northwestern is an incredibb fine University. It 
was then, and it is now. The education I got at Northwestern was top-notch. 
To prove that, I can say that 1 didn't have an> trouble at all getting along at 
LSU Law School because my tune at Northwestern had prepared me tor the 
experience." Ware concluded a l c > c )4 inter\ lew.

HONORS 



The 1996 induction class for Northwestern 's 
Graduate 'N' Club Hall of Fame was headed by Gary 
Reasons, the first player in Division I-AA football history 
to win All- America honors for three years. 

Reasons, along with two-sport star Frank Lampkin 
and women's sports pioneer Lou Lewis Baxter, were 
elected by the 'N' Club, which is comprised of former 
athletic letter winners at Northwestern. 

Longtime Northwestern head coaches Sam 
Goodwin, football; Leon Johnson, track and field; and 
James Smith, women's basketball, also received honorary 
letterman's status during the ceremonies. They were given 
'N' Club lifetime memberships in recognition of their ser- 
vice to the University. 

According to Doug Ireland, director of sports 
information, honorary memberships have never been 
given. These were the first people in the club who did not 
attend Northwestern. Ireland said the board of directors 
felt strongly that these men had made valuable contribu- 
tions to Northwestern and although neither graduated 
from Northwestern, they all considered themselves as true 
Demons. "The lettermen certainly want to include them," 
Ireland said. 

Induction into the 'N' Club Hall of Fame is the 
highest honor offered by Northwestern to its former stu- 
dent-athletes and coaches. "It's a tremendous honor to be 
an honorary member of the 'N' Club," Coach Smith said. 
"To be associated with a group that outstanding is very 
special." 

Coach Goodwin felt about the same. "I'm sur- 
prised and I'm pleased," he said. "It's quite an honor, 
having not been an NSU alumnus." 

"I'm very pleased. It's quite an honor and I'm 
happy to be selected," Coach Leon Johnson said, adding 
that he was surprised that they were chosen since they 
were not NSU alumni.

LEGENDS 



Reasons retired his Demon jersey, #34, following 
his career in 1984 and was inducted in August into the 
College Football Hall of Fame. He set Demon records for 
single-game (24), single-season (172) and career (394) 
tackles from 1980-83. Reasons won two Superbowl 
championship rings during his eight years (1984-91) in 
the NFL with the New York Giants. Reasons, who was a 
1984 honor graduate in business administration, is a col- 
lege football analyst for ABC sports. 

Lampkin, a two-year, all-conference guard in bas- 
ketball, was also a standout javelin thrower in track and 
field. He helped the Demons win back-to-back Louisiana 
Intercollegiate Conference titles in 1946-47 and 1947-48. 
The 1947-48 team advanced to National Association of 
Intercollegiate Basketball Championships. As a senior, he 
won the LIC javelin championship and took the Southern 
AAU Junior Division title. 

Northwestern was put on the forefront of intercol- 
legiate women's athletics in Louisiana as a result of 
Baxter's activism and advocacy. The first women's bas- 
ketball team of the post World War II era in Louisiana, in 
1966-67, was at Northwestern. Other colleges gradually 
followed. The first women's basketball tournament was 
hosted by Northwestern that year. Baxter, a physical edu- 
cation professor, served as volunteer coach for the 
"Demonettes" which established the winning tradition 
that remains today. From 1967-74, the teams had a 70-31 
record. Their most noteworthy achievement was receiving 
an invitation to the 1973 National Women's Invitational 
Tournament. By the 1974-75 season, the "Demonettes" 
had filled two trophy cases in the PE Majors Building. 

The induction ceremonies coincided with the 
1 12th Homecoming celebration on Saturday Oct. 19. The 
inductees and honored coaches were also introduced dur- 
ing pre-game ceremonies.

SIDELINED INJURIES 






The trainer stands on the 
sideline. An official calls a 
time-out due to a possible 
injury. Among the first to 
assist the injured with 
Athletic Trainer Ed Evans 
were 10 student trainers 
and five graduate assis- 
tants. 

According to Evans, 
the trainers were an essen- 
tial part of each team. 

The trainers' responsi- 
bilities throughout the year 
included care, prevention 
and rehabilitation of ath- 
letic injuries. 

During games, trainers 
evaluated and treated all 
injuries, kept injuries 
taped, performed basic 
first aid and gave players 
plenty of water. The duties 
of the trainers varied from 
week to week and depend- 
ed on academic classifica- 
tion. 

"I don't feel you could 
put a value on them [stu- 
dent trainers]," Evans said. 
"Often sports are going on 
at the same time, and the students cover the sports I can't." 
■■^^■■■■■■■Hi 'The most trying thing about this job is telling people how 
bad an injury they have when they don't think it's that bad, or when they are done for a 
season and can't compete anymore," Robert Delong, graduate assistant trainer, said. "I 
have to try to convince them that their rehab is worth it, even though they can't play 
right now." 

Though the trainers had to help athletes through rough times, there were also 
rewarding aspects to having the job, according to Evans. 

"It is very satisfying knowing you're helping someone and possibly preventing 
worse injury," Brittany Smith, student trainer, said. 

Trainers came across some unusual situations. "I was working at a cheerleader 
camp here one summer and one of the sponsors was on the fourth floor of Sabine

about 1 1:00 at night," Jason Wood, a graduate assistant trainer, said. "A girl came running and 
said that the sponsor had dislocated her knee doing the 'tootsie roll.' That was the weirdest 
thing for me." 

Trainers became involved for various reasons. According to Smith, her interest started in 
high school from stories a friend would come home and tell her about his college experience as 
a trainer. 

Delong also developed an interest in high school. "I've been a student trainer since I was 
a freshman in high school," Delong said. "In high school, everybody was either in sports or 
involved in them somehow. I wasn't very good at them, and I wanted to be involved." 

An interest in sports sparked Woods' beginning in training. "The reason I became a 
trainer is my unbelievable interest in sports," Wood said. "There came a time when I couldn't 
play sports anymore. I didn't want to let go, so I became involved with this. It's really satisfy- 
ing." 

According to Delong, becoming an athletic trainer required a lot of training. At 
Northwestern, a student had to minor in athletic training in order to be a trainer. Participants 
received hands-on training and a work-study job allowing them to utilize their skills.

Having had success in turning around 
struggling volleyball programs, first year head 
coach Mary DeJute and her team had their 
sights set on improving upon last year's disap- 
pointing 7-30 overall mark and winless con- 
ference campaign. 

Despite winning their first Southland 
Conference victory since 1993, however, the 
Lady Demons again posted a losing mark of 
6-27 overall, 1-15 SLC. 

Northwestern began the season on an 
odd note, winning its opener against Southern 
University by forfeit. 

In the first tournament of the year, the 
Northwestern State Invitational, the Lady 
Demons topped Prairie View once and 
Centenary twice, while losing close matches 
with Lamar and Texas-Pan American. 

"We could have won both matches," 
said DeJute. "We made some strides this 
weekend and learned a lot about our team." 

Northwestern stood at 4-2 heading 
into the Mississippi State Bulldog Invitational. 
The Lady Demons wouldn't fare as well in 
this second tournament of the season, howev- 
er, as they dropped three matches to host 
Mississippi State, Southeastern Louisiana, 
and Troy State, dropping their record to 4-5. 

From there, Northwestern would hit a 
skid, losing their next nine games before win- 
ning a huge contest against SLC foe 
Northeast Louisiana 17-15, 15-10, 12-15, 15- 
12 for their first conference victory in its last 
28 games and improving to 5-14. 

Yet, the rush of victory would not give 
the Lady Demons the momentum they would 
need in order to reverse their direction. They 
fell in their next six games before trouncing 
Southern in three sets 16-14, 15-5, 15-10 for a 
season-sweep of their non-conference foe. 

Unfortunately that would prove to be 
the last win of the season for the young 
Northwestern squad as they dropped their 
remaining seven games and missed the

f 1 Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame 

li HONORS LEGENDS 

On June 22, 1996, seven stars, including football greats 
Joe Delaney, Isiah Robertson and Rosey Taylor were inducted 
into the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame, officially joining the 
ranks of state sports legends. 

Also honored were Olympic gymnast Kathy Johnson 
Clarke, baseball's Earl "Moose" Wilson and Oliver Marcelle and 
basketball All-American Mike Green. 

The formal induction, held on the evening of June 22, 
capped off two days of festivities. 

Also honored during the induction ceremonies were vet- 
eran sportswriters Jerry Byrd of Shreveport and Joe Planas of 
Baton Rouge. Each of these sports journalist were honored with 
the state's Distinguished Service Award in Sports Journalism. 

Festivities during the 24th annual Hall of Fame activities 
included a press conference, a scramble golf tournament, a tour 
of Natchitoches, a reception at the Hall of Fame in Prather 
Coliseum and the induction and banquet ceremonies in the 
Student Union Ballroom. 

Founded by the Louisiana Sportswriters Association in 
1958, the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame found its permanent 
home at Northwestern State University in 1972. These inductees 
joined only 158 previous honorees enshrined in the Hall of 
Fame. 

Delaney, a Haughton native and graduate of Northwestern 
State University, was an All-American star in high school and 
college football and track and American Football Conference 
Rookie of the Year in 1982. During his football career at NSU, 
Delaney set a career rushing record with 3,047 yards on 615 car- 
ries, a 5.0 average and scored 27 touchdowns. In track, he set 
school records in the 100 and 200-meters and was part of the 
NCAA 400-meter relay championship team in 1981 when he 
earned All-American honors. In 1983, Delaney drowned in a 
heroic rescue attempt. 

Robertson, a New Orleans native, graduate of 
Covington's Pine View High School and a product of Southern 
University was a six-time Pro-Bowl selection and Southern's 
first college division All-American (1970). During the years 
1971-78, Robertson played with the Los Angeles Rams and four 
more years, 1979-82, with Buffalo as an outside linebacker. 
While at Southern University in 1970, he made The Sporting 
News and Time Magazine All-America teams along with AP and 
UP small-college All-America squads. The Rams' first-round 
draft pick, No. 10 overall, in 1970, he was the NFL Defensive 
Rookie of the Year in 1971 as chosen by AP and Pro Football 
Weekly. Robertson was named All-Pro in 1976 and 1977. He

had three interception runbacks for touchdowns in his career, 
including a 59-yard touchdown in a playoff win over Washington in 
1974. 

Taylor, a New Orleans product, played defensive back at 
Grambling State in the late 1950's and early 1960's, and played in 
the NFL for 14 years with the Chicago Bears (1961-69), San Diego 
(1969), San Francisco (1970-71) and Washington (1972). His 414 
pass interception return yards was a Chicago career club record. 
Taylor made the Pro-Bowl in 1 964 and 1 969 and was an All-Pro 
choice in 1963. He helped the 49ers to the NFC title games in both 
his seasons with them and helped the Redskins make the Super 
Bowl in 1972. 

An All-American gymnast at Centenary College in 1978 and 
1979, Kathy Johnson made the US Olympic Team in 1980 and 
stayed around until 1984, winning two medals at the games in Los 
Angeles. Johnson won a silver with the US team and an individual 
bronze on the balance beam at the age of 24, an age that is consid- 
ered old for gymnastics. She came to Louisiana to train with Coach 
Vannie Edwards at Olympia Training Center in Belcher. She was the 
U.S. Gymnastics Federation "Gymnast of the Year" in 1977 and was 
all-around champion in the American Cup at Madison Square 
Garden. While attending Centenary College, Johnson led Centenary 
to two straight AIAW Small College national championships. 

Wilson, a native of Ponchatoula, spent 1 1 years in big 
leagues with his best season in 1967, when he was 22-1 1 with 
Detroit, leading the American League in wins that year. Wilson 
threw a no-hitter for Boston in 1962. The 6-3 right hander was 121- 
109 with a 3.69 career ERA, and struck out 1,452 batters in 2,051 
2/3 innings pitched. He had a career-best 200 strikeouts in 1966. 
Also a good hitter, he had 35 big league home runs. 

Marcelle, nicknamed "The Ghost of New Orleans," was one 
of the most talented Negro League players of the 1920's. The 
Thibodeaux native was named in a 1953 Pittsburg Courier poll as 
the Negro League's all-time greatest third baseman, ahead of future 
Baseball Hall of Famers Ray Dandridge and Judy Johnson. Marcelle 
had a Negro League lifetime average of .310 fro 1919-1930, posted 
a .305 average in eight winter league sessions in Cuba, including a 
league-high .393 in 1923-24. 

Green, a 6-10 center from McComb, Miss., set Louisiana 
Tech career records for 2,340 points and 1,575 rebounds, averaging 
22.9 points and 15.4 rebounds a game from 1969-74. He was the 
national college division "Player of the Year" in 1973 when he aver- 
aged 30.9 points per game and helped lead Tech to a 23-5 record 
and several No. 1 national rankings. Green was a four-time all-con- 
ference player, and Tech was 83-19 in his years there. In a 1973 
game, he set a school single-game record with 47 points and scored 
40 or more points in a game five times. Green was a No. 1 draft 
pick by the pros in 1974 and played seven professional seasons -- 
three in the ABA and four in the NBA. He scored 5.301 points in 
459 games. I ^^^^^^^ MM ^^^^^^^^^^ M Kevin Brough

Vikki Boyd defends the 
goal for the Lady Demons. 



The Lady Demons soccer team complet- 
ed part of its mission to establish a prominent 
soccer program for Northwestern but fell short 
of a winning record. 

Although the Lady Demons were 
defeated at all of its scheduled contests for the 
season, members developed as a team, starting 
a new era of women's soccer. The soccer team 
was optimistic throughout the entire season, 
accepting defeat, but at the same time they 
learned from their mistakes. This newly devel- 
oped team earned its spot in Northwestern 's 
history as the first NCAA Division I compet- 
ing women's soccer club. This first soccer team 
had a rough road during the last season paying 
their own dues and paving the way for future 
soccer enthusiasts. 

"Our goal for this season was to learn 
each other's playing style and to gel as a team," 
Maribeth Forrest, women's head soccer coach, 
said. "We were also looking to learn from our 
opponents." 

Women from throughout Louisiana, 
California and Texas were recruited to make 
the team of 1 5 players, consisting of eight 
freshmen, four sophomores and three juniors. 
This team was composed mostly of younger 
players who will develop during the season to 
come, ensuring a solid team for the Lady 
Demons. 

The goalkeepers for the team were

her speed and aggressive nature, according to Forrest. 

Four freshmen and two sophomores made up the mid- 
fielders who were signed by Forrest. Erin Carpenter, a fresh- 
man from Shreveport, received All City Team honors in 1 994 
and 1995 for playing for other soccer clubs. Amy Triplett, a 
freshman also from Shreveport, earned the Team 
Sportsmanship Award in Soccer in 1995. Kate Turner, a 
freshman from Lafayette, was named All District First Team 
in 1996. Jeantelle Duhon was also named All District First 
Team in 1995 and 1996 while in high school in Lafayette. 
Amy Lambre, a sophomore transfer from Rhode Island 
Junior College, was the leading scorer at Northshore High 
School. Sophomore Amy Choate from Natchitoches 
gained her experience from Natchitoches Central where T ' 
she played for two years. The midfielders were strong 
because they acquired experience and knowledge of the game before 
becoming Lady Demons. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^™ 

The defenders consisted of highly competitive women. Christy Benfield, a freshman from 
Deer Park, Texas, earned 1996 All Star Team honors. Jennifer Peck, a junior transfer from Ventura 
College, Calif., added experience to the young team. Sandy Baber, a freshman from Alexandria, 
will be a future force Forrest believed. 

Junior Tammy Peck, a transfer student from Ventura College, Calif., was positioned as one 
of the Demon strikers. The second striker was Kelly Knapschaefer from Bedford, Texas. 

'Although we were not successful as far as our win-loss record goes, we were very successful 
when it comes to the talent of the kids we brought in to the program," assistant coach Leslie Faber 
said. 

The Lady Demons faced a daunting opposition 
with the 1 9 matches that were scheduled for the season 
that closed in early November. The Lady Demons faced 
off with rivals McNeese, Centenary and Stephen F. 
Austin, plus competition from Alabama, Texas Christian 
University, Tulane, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State 
and Old Miss. This was a challenging agenda of com- 
petitors that carried Northwestern to and beyond their 

mits. Stretching the 
imits of defeat, they 
still came out as true 
winners.

Though there is no team, soccer players find time to 

PLAY HARD 








Soccer has recently become an increas- 
ingly popular sport with many Americans. 
Much of this popularity can be attributed to 
World Cup playoff competition that was held 
across the United States and to the American 
women's soccer team victory in the 1996 
Summer Olympic games. 

Club soccer, however, has been popular 
with many NSU students since the fall of 1992 
when the University got its first men's club soc- 
cer team. The men's team was soon followed 
with the addition of a women's team in the fall 
of 1994. 

Club soccer, which is funded by the 
Students Activity Board and fundraising done 
by team members, follows the same rules of 
NCAA soccer. It has proven to be an outlet for 
students wanting to play soccer but not on the 
national collegiate level. 

"Until the addition of the Women's 
NCAA team to the NSU Athletic Department, 
Club Soccer was the only way for students on

teammate Scott Rogers. 



our campus to participate in a recreational form 
of the sport," John R. Foster, club soccer coach 
said. "Not all students have the desire or ability 
to play NCAA level sports, but they would like 
to continue to play for personal pleasure. Club 
Soccer does and will continue to offer that 
opportunity." 

Foster feels that the sport is growing in 
popularity for a variety of reasons with the ben- 
efits of health and safety being some of the 
most important aspects. 

"It [soccer] is great exercise," he said. 
"The requirement to run will benefit the aver- 
age person. Parents of younger children see it as 
a safer exercise alternative to playing football. 
Secondly, it is relatively inexpensive to play. 
Finally it is a sport that either men or women 
can play well into their fifties or even sixties if 
they remain fit." 

Northwestern plays in the Gulf South 
Soccer Conference during the fall against other 
four year colleges and universities in Louisiana.

"urrently, there are nine men's teams and five women's teams 
[Tie men's teams include: Tulane, LSU, USL, Southeastern, 
sJLU, Louisiana Tech, Louisiana College and NSU In 
he women's division, the teams are: Tulane, LSU, 
.ouisiana Tech, Louisiana College and NSU. Next 
all, the men's division will add McNeese and 
jrambling. Nichols will also add both a men's and 
vomen's team. 

Students who play club soccer think that the 
;port is gaining popularity because people are starting 
o take an active role in the sport. 

"I think soccer is becoming more popular with 
everyone because of the Major League Soccer 
Association and the US Women's National Team," 
>arah Lyles, a full back on the team stated. "More 
)eople look at that [the teams] and are getting 
nvolved." 

Lyles went on to say that because of the nation- 
il attention of the US Women's National Team, people 
ire becoming more aware of women's ability in soc- 
:er. 

"I hope that women's soccer becomes as popu- 
ar as men's soccer," she said. "Soccer is one of those 
;ports that women can play as well as men." 

Foster agrees with Lyles views and believes 
hat soccer will become even more popular than it is 
low. 

"I believe that soccer will become the most played 
;port in America in the next century," he commented. "It is a 
>port that can be played by a wide range of people."

BREAKING RECORDS 

Spectacular efforts by Lady Demon runners highlighted a magnificent 1996 Northwestern 
Cross Country campaign and Demon runners made marked strides throughout the season as both 
teams improved on last year's conference finishes. 

The season started with the Northwestern Invitational. The Lady Demons wasted no time in 
roaring out of the gates with a tie for first place with the University of Texas- Arlington out of a 
field of seven teams. Jody Gowdy led Northwestern with a 4th place 19:59 finish on the 5000m 
course. Christal Traylor and Robin Meyers followed with 6th (20:32) and 8th (20:56) place finish- 
es respectively. 

The Northwestern men finished 3rd in the meet behind UTA and Sam Houston. Top finish- 
ers for the Demons included Robert McCormack (5th, 27:06) and Robert Bonner (9th, 28:05). 

The Lady Demons dominated the field in their next meet, the 2 mile Louisiana Tech Cross 
Country Invitational, outdistancing a field of five Jody Gowdy again led Northwestern, finishing 
3rd (1 1:57). She was closely followed by Molly Magill who finished 4th with a time of 12:04. 

The Demons didn't fare as well, as they took home a fourth place finish out of six teams led 
by McNeese. Robert McCormack again had an outstanding meet, running to a third place finish 
with a time of 20:32. 

In their third meet of the season, the Lady Demons came up just three points short in a hotly 
contested battle with Tulane, finishing with 58 points to the Green Wave's 55 in the 3 mile Popeye's 
USL Ragin' Cajun Cross Country Invitational. This time Molly Magill led Northwestern with a 6th 
place, 19:06 finish and was followed by Robin Meyers who recorded an 8th place, 19:12 time. 

The Northwestern men finished in the middle of the pack, running to a 5th place finish in 
the 9squad field again led by McNeese. Juan Londono led Northwestern with a 22:29 time, good 
enough for 18th place. 

In the final meet before the Southland Conference Championships, the Lady Demons proved 
they were ready in winning the Northeast Louisiana Cross Country Invitational. Leading

Beyers (1 lth, 14:41), Jody Gowdy (13th, 14:54), and Cynthia

)emons. 

In the men's race, Northwestern was fifth in a nine-team

lobert McCormack, fourth overall in 19:54.

Jody Gowdy was very happy with the 
team's performance. "UTSA is a great 
team. We're young, and I think we sur- 
prised a lot of people around the confer- 
ence with what we did today. I think 
we'll be in contention for the champi- 
onship in the future, " she said. 

Gowdy, one of three freshman among 
the top-five Northwestern finishers, ran 
19:22 over the 5,000m course to lead the 
team with a 12th place finish. Right on 
her heels were: freshman Christal 
Traylor, 13th in 19:26; junior Bridget 
Gharrity, 14th in 19:35; senior Robin 
Meyers, 15th in 19:37; and freshman 
Molly Magill, 17th in 19:39. 

Robert Bonner led the Northwestern 
men to a 7th place finish with an 18th 
place, 26:20 showing. 

The Lady Demon's season was 
^™ not yet over, however, as they were 
primed to compete in the District VI 
meet at the University of North Texas. With close to 70 qualifying teams, and 15-16 actually compet- 
ing, it would prove to be the stiffest competition the young Northwestern field would face all season. 
Northwestern would more than hold their own with a very respectable 1 1th place finish. 

With young talent performing at such a high level so early in their careers, both the mens and 
women's cross country teams and supporters have much to look forward to in future seasons. The 
race has begun, and both teams show no indications of looking over their shoulders.

Overcoming injuries, the Lady Demons come 

BOUNCING BACK 



114 



After a disappointing season spawned by crip- 
pling injuries to top players Ljudmila Pavlov and 
Natalie Opoku, Northwestern tennis was hoping that a 
little off-time would bring them back to the champi- 
onship form it displayed in winning the conference 
championship in 1994. 

At the start of the season, the Lady Demons 
team was forced to forfeit its first three games against 
Baylor. Because Kourtney Kentzel and Tanya Doty 
were walk-ons, they needed to be cleared by the 
NCAA for eligibility, a process not completed by the 
opener. 

Bent on avenging this season-opening anomaly, 
Northwestern brought its 0- 1 record to the Tulane 
Quadrangular. Although Pavlov won her match at the 
No. 1 singles position, the rest of the team could not 
find its rhythm, as the Lady Demons dropped its two 
matches, 5-2 to Southern Mississippi and 6-1 to host 
Tulane. 

Bringing a 0-3 record into their conference 
opener against Stephen F. Austin, Northwestern knew it 
had some regrouping to do if it was to have a success- 
ful conference campaign. And regroup they did, smash- 
ing SFA 7-2 in grand fashion in Nacogdoches, Texas. 

In their mid-season match against McNeese 
State, the Lady Demons squeaked out a 5-4 victory 
despite playing without top player Pavlov who was

again sidelined with a shoulder injury. 
Northwestern improved to 3-5, 3-1 
Southland Conference with the win. 

Perhaps hampered by more 
injuries than was evident, the Lady 
Demons were defeated by the Northeast 
Lady Indians 8- 1 , before squeezing past 
previously undefeated in conference play 
Texas-San Antonio, 5-4. 

Despite this significant victory, 
Northwestern fell to 4-7, 4-3 SLC with a 
loss to Southwest Texas State. 

As if an injury to Pavlov wasn't 
bad enough, No. 2 singles player Opoku 
was out with a foot injury. This deadly 
combination was too much for 
Northwestern to overcome as the Lady 
Demons lost again, falling to North Texas 
8-1, dropping its record to 4-9, 4-5 SLC. 

Entering the SLC tournament in 
Monroe, the Lady Demons had finished 
sixth in the regular season race. Lost 
opportunities due to debilitating injuries 
frustrated Coach Willie Paz. 

"It's been a struggle to stay 
healthy this season but we're feeling pret- 
ty good right now," he said. "We're just 
concentrating on playing smart tennis for 
the tournament."

Pavlov gave a heroic effort, making it 
to the final round at the No. 1 slot before 
losing in three sets 4-6, 6-4, 6-3, playing 
through shoulder injuries and blisters. 

Losing only two seniors, Opoku and 
Christine Dodge, Northwestern will definite- 
ly again have the talent to contend for an 
SLC championship. Only time will tell if 
injuries will relent and allow the true power 
of Lady Demon tennis to make itself felt.

GO DOWN SWINGING 

The 1996 Northwestern Baseball season began with high 
expectations, from both within and outside the organization. 

This was nothing to the three-time defending Southland 
Conference Champions because "expectations" were exactly what 
the word connoted — expected. Being picked to finish second in 
conference was perhaps not an honor, but more of an affront. The

Demons were accustomed to being the best. But with conference 
nemesis Northeast Louisiana returning all but two players from 
the team that won last year's conference tournament, the Demons 
possibly had to work harder to prove it . 

Northwestern began the season with a 1 0-game home stand 
and a 9-1 drubbing of in-state opponent Louisiana College, fol- 
lowed by a 21-4 smashing of Centenary College. In the first 
game, Mark Burke s grand slam home run in the bottom of the 
8th inning broke open a close game to help Northwestern to the 
victory. In the second, the Demons sent 14 batters to the plate and 
scored 1 1 runs in the first inning as they cruised to the win. 



116 



Baseball 



The first test of the season came next as the Arkansas 
Razorbacks of the SEC brought its 5-0 record to Natchitoches to face 
the 3-0 host Demons. The Hogs would prove to be more than up to the 
task in sweeping three games from Northwestern, capping off its suc- 
cessful stint with a 10-5 
win. 

About midway 
through the schedule, hav- 
ing been swept by 
Northeast and having lost 
seven of its last eight 
games, Northwestern (15- 
17, 5-10 SLC) would face 
its biggest challenge of the 
year in No. 6 ranked LSU 
Tigers in Baton Rouge. The 
Demons proved it was 
much better than its record 
indicated by sweeping two 
games from the Tigers 10- 
5, 6-5, with the second 
game highlighted by the 
ninth-inning heroics of 
Nick Simokatis. His sacri- 
fice fly in the top of the 
ninth gave Northwestern a 
lead it would not relinquish 
in the 6-5 thriller at Alex 
Box Stadium. Kevin 
Needham picked up the 
win for the Demons, pitch- 
ing 3 1/3 innings, giving up 
two hits and no runs. 

Outfielder Brent 
Trosclair nabbed state base- 
ball's "Player of the Week" 
honor after helping 
Northwestern take two of 
three from Nicholls State, 
and with the sweep of LSU, 
finishing the week with a 
.380 average including 
going 5-9 with 7 RBIs against the Tigers. 

Coming on strong late in the conference race after taking two of 
three from league favorite Northeast, the Demons (31-25, 14-16 SLC) 
assured itself of another berth in the SLC tournament and another shot 
at an NCAA regional tournament bid.

Northwestern headed into the SLC Tournament 
in Shreveport eager to show its mettle after missing 
out on the NCAA regionals the year before. 

First up for the Demons was Southwest Texas 
State, also coming into the tournament on the 
upswing, having won seven of its last 1 1 games. The 
battle of the late-season "surgers" was close, but 
Northwestern would lose its first game of the tourna- 
ment for the fourth consecutive year, an 11-10 deci- 







sion at the hands of the Bobcats. 

Now one loss from elimination, the Demons 
faced Texas-Arlington. Trailing 5-1 heading into the 
bottom of the seventh, Will Pearce knocked a two-run 
single with two outs to cap a 5-run inning, propelling 
Northwestern to a 7-6 win over the Mavericks. 

After eliminating Southwest Texas State with a 
revenge rematch, the Demons were set to spar with 
No. 1 seed Northeast Louisiana (41-19). Pearce again 
came up big for Northwestern, hitting two home runs 
and driving in six runs, helping Northwestern (34-26) 
to a 7-4 victory and eliminating the Indians from the 
tournament. 

Catapulted into the championship game against 
preseason cellar pick Sam Houston (29-30), the 
Demons were faced with the task of taking two from 
the Bearkats, who had yet to lose in the tournament.

Baseball 



Northwestern would be unable to turn the trick even once; however, as the Demons 
ame up on the short end of a 10-inning thriller 8-7, marking the second time in three years 
Northwestern was runner-up in the tournament. 

On his way to being named the tournament's MVP, Brent Bubela of Sam Houston hit a 
-un-scoring double in the bottom of the 10th to give the Bearkats a lead they would not sur- 
-ender. 

Northwestern, finishing its season at 34-27, placed five players on the all-tournament 
:eam: George Kellert, first baseman; Fred Ortega, third baseman; Juan Navarro, catcher; 
Pearce, outfielder; and David Balcer, pitcher. 

Season-ending honors were also earned by several Northwestern players. Simokatis, 
designated hitter, was the only Demon to earn first-team All-SLC honors after batting .352 
vvith eight home runs and 52 RBIs. Second-team honors went to Tony Pezely, shortstop; Zach 
vlartin, pitcher; Rick Metcalfe and Ortega. 

Robert Hewes, second baseman, and Simkoatis went on to be named to the Louisiana 
Sportswriters Association All-Louisiana second-team. Hewes batted .310 with 54 runs scored, 
57 hits, 49 RBIs and a school-record 47 walks.

flARD SCHED1L 



Molding a successful program in any sport is never 
accomplished instantaneously. 

In Coach Gay McNutt's first year at the helm of 
Northwestern Lady Demon softball, the team struggled to a 
disappointing 13-37 overall record. Although the 1996 team 
ended the year with similar (10-41, 7-14 SLC) records, the 
Lady Demons came on strong in the latter half of the year, 
making its presence felt in the Southland Conference. 

"We were extremely young and young teams are usual- 
ly inconsistent," McNutt said. "We had flashes of brilliance 
through most of the season, but really began to play consistent 
ly well at the end of the conference race. With a team that's 
rebuilding, that is your first goal, to improve each game." 

Northwestern began the season in the NLU Mardi Gras 
Classic with host Northeast. The Lady Demons would open on a 
sour note, falling to the Lady Indians 7-0, and would be unable to 
regroup, dropping four more games in the tournament: 6-3 to 
Tulsa, 8-0 to Sam Houston, 9-1 to Oklahoma, and a close 5-4 deci- 
sion to preseason SLC favorite, McNeese State. 

The road did not get any easier for Northwestern as they trav- 
eled to Tucson, Az., to participate in the Arizona Wildcat Classic, a 
tournament laden with national powers. 

The Lady Demons played the Tennessee Lady Volunteers closel) 
for five innings but couldn't keep pace as Tennessee pulled away for ar 
1 1-3 win. 

In the second game, No. 2 ranked host Arizona exploded for foi 
runs in each of the first four innings and justified its ranking with a 16 
4 demolition.

FINISH STRONG IN SLC 





Improvement was the theme this year as the Northwestern track teams 
improved not only on last season's finish, but also throughout the year. 

Uncharacteristically low finishes in the Southland Conference Indoor 
Championships set the stage for a run at the outdoor titles for both men and 
women. 

Joe Rhyans' win in the 55-meter hurdles, combined with second place fin- 
ishes from Terrance Bean in the high jump and Ronnie Powell in the 55-meter 
dash, led the Northwestern men to fourth place in the 10-team SLC Indoor Track 
and Field Championships. 

In the women's competition, Northwestern 's best finish was Tiffany 
Cronin's third place in the triple jump, leaving the Lady Demons at the bottom of 
the field. Texas-Arlington swept the honors, winning both the mens and women's 
competitions.

These excellent performances catapulted Northwestern to its best performance of the 
year as it swept both team titles at the Northwestern Invitational. A dozen Northwestern ath- 
letes recorded personal bests, led by a school 19 — 1 1/2 long jump by Malone. 

"We've never had so many national qualifying performances at this meet, although we 
always have several national-class marks," Coach Leon Johnson, a 14-year veteran, said. "The 
track was fast, the runways were fast, the wind conditions were favorable, and most important, 
the athletes responded." 

And respond they did, with three athletes setting marks that bettered NCAA provisional 
qualifying standards: Montague, long jump (25-10); Allen Smith, discus ( 178-1 1 ): and 
Ronnie Powell, 100-meter sprint ( 10.41 ). 

This dominant showing would be just the impetus needed to propel Northwestern to 
strong finishes in the season finale SLC Outdoor Championships.

did not end there, however, as he went on to win All-American honors with a ninth 
place finish at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships. Montague also 
competed in the meet, finishing 16th in the long jump competition, recording a 24-3

On the women's side, Tiffany Cronin's second place 40-0 triple jump led the

from Stacy Gay (56.40) in the 400 meter dash. 

Superior coaching, natural talent, and hard work have made Northwestern track 
and field a perennial power to be respected. Pride in past achievements and the desire 
to uphold that tradition should make next year's team eager to repeat and surpass this 
season's outstanding performances.

Gaining momentum in '97 season, Demons earn SLC 

PLAYOFF BERTH 




Heading into the last seven games of the 1995-96 season, Northwestern was a team strug- 
gling to find some coherence. Riding a three-game losing streak in the midst of a 

4-15, 2-9 SLC season, the Demons were hardly the team that 
snuck up on the league a year ago en route to a surprising confer- 
ence finish. Northwestern was a young team, boasting only one 
senior, and could only look to the 1 996-97 season as the year mer- 
cifully ground to a halt. 

Northwestern would win its next game against Southwest 
Texas State 57-41, holding the Bobcats to the second-lowest point 
total in 25 seasons. Seth LeGrand led the low-scoring affair with 
12 points, with Ryan Bundy and Stephen Barnes each adding 10 
for the Demons. 

From there it would be all downhill for Northwestern who 
would lose its last six games of the season to finish 5-21 overall, 
3-15 SLC.

After topping Texas-Arlington in

who shot only 38.7 percent for the game. Northwestern was led by Hendersons and Bundy's 14 and 1 1 
ooints, respectively. 

Northwestern would face its final two games of the season on foreign courts as it traveled to 
Stephen F. Austin and Sam Houston State, the second meeting in five games against the Bearkats. 

A 14-3 run with 4:56 remaining erased an 1 1 -point deficit and tied the game at 65, but the

Bearkats shot a scorching 53.4 percent and 
50 percent from beyond the arc to top 
Northwestern 85-64 behind 20 points and 13 
boards from Frank Mata. 

Head Coach J. D. Barnett said the sea- 
son's results adversely affected his team. "It's 
a snowball effect," he said. "We're already 
frustrated at the way the season has gone. 
When we can't score, and run into a hot- 
shooting team, it is very tough for this team 
to fight through the adversity. We couldn't 
tonight." 

The beginning of the 1996-97 season 
was a welcome event as Northwestern was 
anxious to erase memories of last year's dis- 
astrous finish and to begin the new season 
with a fresh outlook. 

The Demons looked impressive in its 
opening exhibition wins, topping the 100- 
point mark against both the Barksdale 
Bombers and VASDA. 

The first real test of the season, how- 
ever, would come in Starksville, Miss., 
against SEC member Mississippi State. 
Northwestern surprised the larger school by 
trailing by only one, 35-34 at halftime, after 
leading by as many as 10 in the opening stan- 
za. But turnovers on Northwestern 's first four 
possessions set the tone for the rest of the 
game as it went on to lose to the Bulldogs by 
17, 78-61. The Demons actually out-rebound- 
ed State, 41-40, but couldn't win the battle of 
points, shooting only 35 percent. 

Northwestern would get some measure 
of redemption in its regular-season home 
opener against Arkansas-Monticello, bomb- 
ing the Boll Weevils 1 16-77. Stephen Barnes 
and Sam Alexander pumped in 21 and 20 
points respectively in leading the hot-shoot- 
ing Demons (52 percent from the field) to the 
lopsided win.

came calling to Natchitoches and escaped

nds remaining. Dropping to 2-3, Northwestern was led by 
eGrand's game-high 26 points. 

Another unbeaten in the form of Samford came to town 
3ur days later. But this time, Northwestern would place the 
irst blemish on the Bulldogs' record with a convincing 58-46 
ictory. LeGrand again led the Demons with 1 7 points. 

Northwestern lost a heartbreaking 71-96 overtime deci- 
ion to Grambling, overcoming a 20-point second-half deficit, 
efore sliding past Southeastern Louisiana 92-87, evening its record at 4-4. 

Northwestern (4-6) would lose two decisions to both Baylor and Colorado before its SLC opener 
gainst Sam Houston in Huntsville, Texas. The game would mark the beginning of a three-game confer- 
nce winning streak as the Demons disposed of the Bearkats 83-47 on its way to defeating Stephen F. 
vustin 75-66 and Texas-San Antonio 77-59 to capture an early conference lead. 

Fickle fortune would then turn, as a three-game losing streak evened the Demons' conference 
2cord at 3-3 with losses to Southwest Texas 65-58, Nicholls State 86-71 and McNeese 97-77. Shooting 
ercentages were the telling statistic as Northwestern (7-9, 3-3) shot only 36 percent in the streak com- 
ared to 48 percent for its opponents. 

Northwestern split its next two games, a 58-53 win against Texas-Arlington, and a 70-65 loss to 
Jortheast, a game in which the Demons (8-10, 4-4) suited up only nine players because of injury and 
lness. 

Three-game streaks appeared to be the rule in the Demons' next game against Sam Houston 

State. Northwestern snapped its own three-game losing streak 
while breaking the Bearkats' three-game winning streak in a 
87-67 victory, the first win in a series of four for the Demons 
as they also beat Stephen F Austin 69-63, Nicholls State 90- 
73, and McNeese 96-88, raising their record to 12-12, 8-6 
SLC, clinching a place in the Century Cellunet SLC 
Classic. With only two games remaining in the season. 
Northwestern had the momentum to make a run at a 
high-seed and an automatic berth in the NCAA 
Tournament. ^^^^™

An odd feeling hung in the air over the Northwestern Lady Demon basketball organization 
heading into the end of the 1995-96 season. Tied for second place in conference behind league-lead- 
ing Stephen F. Austin, the Lady Demons were in excellent position to make a run at the regular-sea- 
son title and a high seeding in the SLC tournament. Yet something was amiss. It seemed almost as if, 
in an imperceptible way, the hugely successful machine that was Lady Demon basketball was slowly 
grinding to a halt. Four returning starters and three preseason All-SLC picks weren't supposed to be 
dueling it out for second or third place — they were supposed to be battling their conference nemesis 
Ladyjacks for the coveted titles and for the NCAA tournament berth of which they were jilted a sea- 
son ago. Yet, even at 15-7, 10-3 SLC, heading into the final five regular season games there was a 
feeling that Northwestern was somehow tired. There was no question that the talent was there, but the 
fire seemed to be fading. 

Northwestern began its final push toward the conference tournament with a contest in San 
Antonio against Texas-San Antonio (8-13, 4-9). The Lady Demons held the Lady Roadrunners to a 
paltry 36.7 percent from the floor with some tenacious defense to knock-off UTSA 93-74. Angela 
Simpson and Nicole Lacy each had 19 points to lead Northwestern, and Amanda Cooper added a 
career-high 1 8 points on perfect 8-8 from the field and 2-2 from the line shooting.

Northwestern (16-7, 1 1 
) would stumble in its next 
ontest, however, as Texas- 
Arlington escaped its trip to 
Natchitoches with a narrow 
.5-63 win. Shooting a season-

ield, the Lady Demons fell 
ito a third place tie in the

Head Coach James

iraise for the seniors. 
These five seniors have 
epresented themselves, 
heir teammates and 
heir school with a lot of pride 
nd have accomplished an 
wful lot during their four 
'ears," he said. 

That confidence builder 
vas exactly what was needed 
leading into one of the most 
>ivotal games of the season. 
Besides the conference stand- 
ngs, pride was at stake in a 
:ontest between two great 
ivals. The Lady Demons had 
10 trouble getting up for the 
;ame in the hostile confines of 
ohnson Coliseum in 
Nacogdoches, but lost a 77-75

five points down in the final 5:34 to eke out the 
win. 

"I thought we played good 
enough to win tonight," Smith said. 
"Losing this game isn't devastating, 
not the way we played. We need to 
take care of business at Sam 
Houston and get ready for the con- 
ference tournament." 

Against the Lady Kats, Angela 
Simpson would almost single-hand- 
edly take matters into her own hands, 
pouring in 28 points as Northwestern 
(18-9, 13-5) not only wrapped up the 
victory with the 82-73 win, but also 
the No. 3 seed in the Century Cellunet 
SLC Classic. 

Simpson would continue her hot shooting, 
burying 9-16 field goals while pulling down seven 
rebounds and dishing out seven assists, leading the 
Lady Demons (19-9) to a 74-66 victory in 
the first round of the SLC tournament 
against Texas-Arlington. Joskeen Garner, 
playing with the flu, still managed a dou- 
ble-double with 21 points and 1 1 rebounds. 
Stephanie Shaw chipped in with 13 points. 

The win propelled Northwestern 
into the semifinals and a bout with No. 2 
seed Southwest Texas. The Lady Demons 
fell behind 9-0 to begin the game, and 
could not find their rhythm as the Lady 
Bobcats took advantage of Joskeen 
Garner's illness to take a solid 80-70 victo- 
ry in Northwestern 's (19-10) final game of 
the season. Angela Simpson was the work- 
horse in the game, scoring a career-high 45 
points, but did not get any help as no other 
player scored in double figures. 

The 1996-1997 season got under- 
way with an almost entirely new cast of 
players. A highly touted recruiting class 
was added to two returning starters for an 
untested mix. Many routes were possible 
for the young team and the progression of 
the season was the only thing that would 
unravel the uncertainty surrounding the 
new team. 

After a season-opening loss to 
Southern University, the Lady Demons 
captured their first win of the season, a

Northwestern 's home opener. Sophomore Sonya Bearden poured in 25 points and Louise Chase added 
4 points and 12 rebounds to help Northwestern (1-1) to the victory. 

Next up for the Lady Demons was the Sheraton Capstone Inn Women's Basketball Classic at the 
Jniversity of Alabama. Northwestern lost a close 73-70 decision against Lynn University before bounc- 
ng back with an equally narrow 66-63 victory against Jackson State in the consolation match. Sonya 
iearden again led Northwestern (2-2) in the scoring department with 23 and 21 points respectively, 
;oing 1 l-of-24 from the three-point line in the two games. 

The Lady Demons chalked up a 88-59 thrashing of Arkansas-Pine Bluff behind 17 points from 
tearden before heading down to Orlando for the Gooding's Holiday Classic. There, Northwestern (3-2) 
;ot past UNC-Charlotte 84-72 before losing to No. 17 Auburn 80-57, and Central Florida 86-81, falling 
D 4_4 on the year heading into the SLC opener against No. 23 SFA. 

The Ladyjacks justified their ranking with a 101-68 thrashing of the Lady Demons. Trailing by 
inly three after the first 12 minutes, Northwestern (4-5, 0-1) was unable to hold SFA as they exploded 
d a 30 point halftime advantage. 

The losing streak would continue, as Northwestern lost decisions to Texas-San Antonio 66-64, 
nd to Southwest Texas 82-58, tying a 17-year old record for consecutive losses dating back to 1978-79. 

The Lady Demons would refuse to take the dubious place in the history books as they ended the 
treak with a 85-72 victory over SLC winless Nicholls State. Senior Nicole Lacy scored 16 points and 
'ulled down 1 1 boards to pace Northwestern (5-7, 1-3). 

The tide would not turn, however, as Northwestern (6-9, 2-5) dropped decisions to McNeese 
itate and to Texas-Arlington before holding off 
he Lady Indians of Northeast 76-67 behind 18 
>oints from Sonya Bearden. 

The win against the Lady Indians would 
'rove to be a precursor to a four-game losing 
treak. The Lady Demons dropped two contests

vustin. The Lady Demons showed they had 
lade huge strides since then with a respectable 
0-point 87-77 loss at the hands of the

ided a glimpse into the promising future of

Northwestern State Rowing Team returns 



Varsity Womens 4+ pulls 
away from Kansas and Tulsa 
durring a home victory. 




Spring of 1996 was a year of accomplish- 
ments for the NSU rowing team. The relatively 
young team proved that they were a force to be 
reckoned with. NSU rowers held their own against 
teams such as Duke, Drake, Purdue, Tulane, and 
many other top schools with competitive rowing 
programs. 

The spring season was especially successful 
where the varsity women were concerned. With 
only six returning varsity women, the women were 
forced to work harder than ever. Missing practices 
and failing to complete extra workouts was not an 
option. 

The women's team took first 
place at the Atlanta Rowing 
Festival; third place in Gainsville, 
Fla.; and first or second at almost 
every home race. In addition, the 
women's varsity four with 
coxswain was invited to Champion, 
a race held in Worchester, Mass.. 
This was an honor in that only the 
best teams are allowed to compete 
in this race based on past perfor- 
mances and times. In the end, the 
varsity women overcame extreme 
weather conditions and teams with 
more experience to place ninth in 
the nation.

The Northwestern State Rowing Team 
returned from the 1 996 spring season with one 
mission. The mission was to rebuild the crew. 

Because many of the positions on the team 
became vacant after the previous season, the team 
had to start from the bottom. The experience of the 
team had either graduated or had to concentrate on 
academics. 

The mission ahead of the crew was one of 
great importance. The need to rebuild the team 
was not only for the up coming year but also for 
the many seasons to follow. The summer saw the 
team members using every means at their disposal 
to get the word out to prospective rowers. 

The Rowing Team's main time for recruit- 
ing was during Freshman Connection. Rowers 
spent much of the summer explaining to prospec- 
tive rowers that rowing was not a sport for the elite 
but a sport in which anyone can participate. 

In addition to the recruiting process, the 
NSU Crew reorganized. 

Under a new structure , a new coaching 
staff was assembled by Head Coach Calvin Cupp 
and faculty adviser Dr. Lisa Wolffe. 



The attention needed for the team to reach 
the upper level in rowing required an expanded 
staff. This staff was filled by volunteer coaches 
Rick Carter and Todd Keenen. Carter, previous- 
ly with Washburn University coached the Varsity 
Men, and Keenen, an alumni of NSU, returned to 
Crew to coach the Novice Men. The team was also 
joined by Todd Klienfelter who became the team's 
personal trainer. Klienfelter conditioned and moni- 
tored the land training of all Crew members. 

With the help of the new addition to the 
team staff, the fall season proved to be successful. 
The team claimed two bronze medals at the Head 
of the Chattanooga Regatta in Tennessee; a bronze 
at the Pumpkin Head race in Austin, Texas; a gold 
medal at States in New Orleans and a gold at 
Natchitoches' World Rowing Marathon.

Rodeo Team members don 'tjust 

ROPE THE WIND 




Northwestern 's Intercollegiate Rodeo Team ended the first half of its season sitting in the Top 5 
position in team standings. The team also had eight of its 13 members to finish in the Top 10 in the 
Southern Region in their events. 

Rodeo competition seemed to be a thing of the past here, but the team felt that with their new 
advisor, Dr. Jack Pace, they would have a rodeo competition at home in the next year or two. 

Members of the team were happy with Pace and anticipated the changes that he was working 
towards such as a place on campus for the team to practice and keep their cattle. 

According to Chad Hagan, the team's president, if the whole team could do well, then the 
whole team would be able to go to the finals rather than just an individual in an event. 

Hagan, along with two other team members, was chosen to hold a leadership position for the 
National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA). Hagan served as Student Director for the region. 

"My job is to be at every rodeo in case any of the student athletes have a problem. They can 
come to me so that I can help them solve it," Hagan said. 

The other two members were Scott Welch and Steven Perkins. Both were chosen as NIRA 
Regional Event Directors over the calf roping and team roping events. Their job consisted of working 
with the rodeo officials to ensure that all the athletes were participating in fair competition. 

"When a competitor has a problem with a ruling, they come to us," Welch said. "We then go to 
the judges and the Student Director to take care of the situation." 

The team completed their season in the spring and hoped to make the NIRA finals in Rapid 
City, S. D., in June 1997.

Ranking #1 in Louisiana for the Demons was 

PAR FOR COURSE 



The Northwestern State golf team's 1996 season seemed like something of a roller- 
coaster ride. 

The team spent a fair share of time both at the top and at the bottom. A touch of 
greatness courted failure in the fall as the Demons finished second in the Hal Sutton 
Invitational held at Shreveport Country Club. 

The Demons finished fifth in the 1996 Southland Conference Tournament, match- 
ing the success of prior teams in '91 and '94, and were the top-ranked team in Louisiana. 

Players in the spring of 1996 were seniors Jim Crotty, Jason Myatt, Weyers Van 
Reneberg, juniors Matthew Baum, Joshua Fosdick, and freshmen Magnus Akerstrom, 
Luis Arechiga, Anders Bergman, Paul Cullen, and Manuel Inman. 

The seniors left in the fall along with freshman Bergman who returned home to 
Sweden. This made room on the team for freshman Beau Bockhaus and junior Bob 
Wynne. 

The Demons had one second and three fourth place finishes, and finished in the 
top half of the field in seven out of 10 tournaments. 

Yet, outside of a few good finishes and nothing but pure love for the game of golf, 
being a Demon golfer can often be less than rewarding. "Dedicated" is the only word that 
could be used to describe a team of men who drive an hour to practice only to spend the 
next five hours trying to attain the unattainable — "the perfect golf swing." 

A golfer considers the day a gift from God when the sun is shining, the wind is 
calm, his drives are straight and his putts go in (at least on the second try, anyway). 
However, let's not forget that golf is a year-round sport in the Southland Conference and 
isn't played in a gym or on astro turf, not even during the winter months. 

So after five hours of fighting the wind and rain, looking for lost balls, tapping in 
three putts and wondering when the sun disappeared, the team drives an hour back home. 
The only stop along the way is in Many to grab a couple of Arch Deluxes. After the burg- 
ers have all been eaten, it is then time for the golfers to return home. Once back, they can 
spend time worrying about the homework that needs to be completed by morning and 
turned in before practice. These are Demon golfers.

Greek Life 



Time management was a big issue with every student, but Greeks got things done. 

Each year began with a week of introduction. "Rush" week was a busy, intense interview process or walk 
through of all potential members in each sorority or fraternity house. The sororities and fraternities interviewed 
every person that went through rush. These long days ended with "Bid Day." This was the day that each organiza- 
tion gave rushees invitations and celebrated their new members. 

In August, Sigma Nu Fraternity and Alpha Omicron Pi Fraternity were introduced to the campus. Besides 
building a chapter, they had to adjust to NSU's Greek system. The whole system of fraternities and sororities pulled 
together to help their colonization efforts and make the connections they needed to ease into Greek life. 

Not only were there new colonizations, but a new Greek honor society was chartered. Gamma Sigma Alpha 
was founded to promote education, intellectual interaction and a spirit of cooperation within the Greek system. 

Greek life was evident everywhere on campus. Greeks like Carlton Downey, Student Government 
Association president, or Alicia Thomas, SGA vice president, served in all capacities of campus life. Greeks held 
many positions on campus. They were represented on all athletic teams. Everywhere you looked you could see 
Greek life abundant at NSU. 

Each year Greek life and unity is celebrated with Greek Week; this year it was held in the fall. It was moved 
from the spring to encourage more involvement within the Greek system and to gain positive exposure. Events 
included a dance, parade, IM follies, treasure hunt, and the Grand Chapter Meeting with a slide show and awards. 

There was much time for the Greeks to enjoy themselves. Education and grades were each organization's 
main goals. Play time and unity came after good grades. Greeks had strict study halls each week. If an individual's 
grades were lacking, the system tried to help improve grades. The Greek system allowed each individual to have 
fun but encouraged everyone to be serious first. —Roblynn Gass

society on Jan. 1, 1869.

The number of initiates totals 200,000 nationwide. These mer. 



have upheld the founders' mission to build "Men of Honor,

John Reed Brotherhood of Man under the Fatherhood of God." 



Northwestern 's colony took part in formal rush in the fall 



along with the other fraternities of the Greek system. Members of Sigma Nu Colony will work 
their first year to fulfill a basic core of operating standards. Once these standards have been met 



Northwestern will recieve an active chapter of Sigma Nu.

Planchock Takes Over as Dean of Nursing 




Approaching the 20-year mark with Northwestern, Dr. Norann Planchock 
obtained the position as Dean of the College of Nursing in July 1996. 

Planchock has served in the capacities of instructor, associate professor, 
assistant professor and professor. She continues to teach along with her admin- 
istrative duties. 

As dean, Planchock is responsible for "the implementation of the whole 
curriculum for nursing." 

Because of rapid change in the health care field, Planchock feels 
Northwestern must change with the times. 

"There has been a lot of change in health care, so that has influenced our 
curriculum in nursing," Planchock said. "The big thing we are working out is in 
the graduate level and involves a nurse practitioner program." 

According to Planchock, the master s program has almost been completely 
revamped in order to meet the dynamic changes in the health care area. 

Additionally, the undergraduate program at the Nursing Education Center 
has experienced a transition. 

"We are moving out of the hospital and into the community." Planchock 
aid. "We are becoming community-based; home-health care has become very important." 

According to Planchock, because hospital stays have shortened considerably, the surge of home health care 
gencies is essential because "primary care is a big thing." 

While the structure of the nursing program has changed, the focus on lab work has remained steadfast. 
"We do a lot of things in lab," Planchock said. "The first semester we do a lot of student labs. We have man- 
equins, and they [the students] practice on each other." 

When considering overall change, Planchock would like to see faculty and student unity. 
"We need to be more unified in our approach to things," Planchock said. "I keep thinking about how we can 
timulate one another and encourage one another to grow and to learn to be looking out for the organization of 
ealth care education." 

Planchock came to Northwestern in 1 977 after a strong educational background in nursing. Her education 
ath in nursing has taken her to four different institutions. 

"I've lived a long time, so I've got a lot of education" Planchock said. 

She began her nursing education at Western Pennsylvania Hospital School of Nursing where she was awarded 
er Registered Nurse Certificate. 

"After that [RN certification] I did a little hard time at the University of Pittsburg." Planchock said. "It was 
o expensive I moved to Ohio State in Columbus, Ohio, and I finished my bachelor of science in nursing." 

Planchock also completed her master's degree in nursing from Ohio State which a functional role m educa- 

While at Ohio State, Planchock acquired hands-on knowledge working in the Intensive Care Units at 
Jniversity Hospital and Ohio Respiratory Center. She then worked as a clinical instructor at the Toledo Hospital 
chool of Nursing and served as Clinical Director of Critical Care Areas at Toledo Hospital in the earl) l c )70s. 

After instructing at Northwestern for five years, Planchock took a leave of absence to acquire her doctorate. 
»he received her doctorate in nursing with a minor in administration from Texas Women's I m\eisit\ in Denton, 
exas in August 1984 and then returned to Northwestern. 

Planchock has served as the Associate Director of Graduate Studies and Research in Nursing since 1987 
long with her current position as dean. In 1994 Planchock received her Family Nurse Practioner Certification from 
Northwestern. ^^^^^—^^^ M ^^ M "* I ''' MM

Hayes Offers a Helping Hand in 
Academic Advising 




From teaching students to academic advising, Beth Hayes has dedicated herself 
to the students and campus she has served for more than 30 years. 

A native of Coushatta, La., Hayes knew from an early age what career she want- 
ed to pursue when she grew up. 

"My father was a doctor," Hayes said. "And I always knew that I wanted to be a 
nurse." 

After graduating from high school, Hayes attended what was then Northwestern 
State College and received her bachelor of science degree in nursing. Following gradua- 
tion, Hayes went to work in a pediatrician's office. It was while working in the pediatri- 
cian's office that Hayes received a call concerning a new opportunity. 

"While I was working as a nurse in the pediatrician's office, I received a call 
from the division of nursing," Hayes said. "They wanted to know if I would be interest- 
ed in teaching." 

Hayes came to Natchitoches to speak with the division of nursing and found out that she was indeed interested in 
teaching. She then returned to school and received her master's degree. 

"At that time, Northwestern did not have the master's of nursing program," Hayes related. "I received my master's in 
education with a focus on student personnel services." 

She returned to her alma mater and began teaching. As a teacher, Hayes primarily taught pediatrics. In addition, she 
accompanied clinical students in the hospitals during clinical rotations. 

However, as the enrollment of the nursing school grew, so did the need for student advising. To help accommodate the 
needs of the increasing student population, Hayes was appointed as the coordinator of student services. 
Fifteen years later, Hayes continues to help students as associate director of student services. 

Some of Hayes' responsibilities as associate director of student services include academic advising of students, serv- 
ing as head of the advisors for the nursing department, assisting students in finding out what courses they are in need of in 

order to graduate and acting as a 
clearinghouse for what students 
need from the Shreveport campus. 
In addition, Hayes serves as 
the faculty advisor and budget head 
for the SSGA, works with the reg- 
istrar to set up the fee payment 
schedule for the Shreveport cam- 
pus and meets with the Dean of 
Nursing and other associate direc- 
tors to assist in schedule planning. 

Hayes also works with 
Shreveport organizations in secur- 
ing much deserved scholarships 
for the nursing students. These 
scholarships include the Shreveport 
Medical Auxiliary scholarship, the 
Highland Auxiliary scholarship and 
the Rotary Club scholarship. 

"My main function at NSU- 
S is to assist the students in any 
way I can," Hayes said. "They (the 
students) are our first focus."

Marjorie-Helen Semones was named "Student Nurse of the State" 
)y the Louisiana Student Nurses Association at the October 1 996 state 
invention held in Monroe. 

In recognition of her accomplishments, Semones received a plaque 
ind a S250 scholarship to help with school expenses. 

"Receiving the award was a tremendous honor," Semones said. 
'The award gave me a tremendous amount of encouragement to continue 
o press on, and it also helped me to be able to encourage others in the 
mrsing program." 

From around the state, each nursing school nominated one excep- 
ional student in its program to apply for the award. 

"I was nominated by NSU to apply for the award," Semones said. 
After the nomination was submitted, I had to fill out an application and 
vrite a paper about what the field of nursing means to me." 

In addition, Semones had to write a statement about what the 
>tudent Nurses Association meant to her and how it had been a part of her 
tursing education. 

The paper was then submitted to the Louisiana Student Nurses 
Association's state office where a committee reviewed all submitted 
>apers and interviewed each participant at the state convention, from which a final 
lecision was made. 




Margorie-Helen Semones takes a 
break from studying to share her love 
of nursing. 



As a student at Northwestern, Semones became involved with both the Baptist Student Union and the Student Nurses 

Semones Named Student Nurse of the State 



Association, both of which kept her busy. 

One of Semones primary responsibilities as a member of the Student Nurses Association was her position as the orga- 
lizations Community Health Projects officer. 

'As the Community Health Projects officer, it is my responsibility to get community projects together that the SNA. 
an participate in," Semones said. 

Some of the activities the SNA participated in included the American Cancer Society's "Walk for Life'* and the 
American Diabetes Association's "Walk-a-thon." 

In addition, Semones coordinated the SNA's key project concerning Osteoporosis. 

"We are going into the high school to talk with students and with other ages as well about Osteoporosis and its 
fleets," Semones said. 

Semones accounted that from an early age, she had always shown an interest in pursuing a career in the medical field. 
'hough she initially wanted to become a doctor, Semones chose Nursing after completing a semester-long research projeel 
/hile attending Zachary High School in Baton Rouge. 

"During my 10th grade year, I did a semester-long research project on the developmental stages o\' Down's Syndrome 
hildren," Semones said. 

Semones and other students worked hand-in-hand with Down's Syndrome students at a special school m Baton Rouge. 
It is during these encounters with these special children that Semones realized her calling in life. 

"When I was working hand-in-hand with these exceptional children. I knew that this is what the Lord wanted me to <.\o 
•ith my life," Semones said. "Going through nursing school and working in the hospitals during clinical rotations has been an 
(ffirmation to me knowing that this is where I am supposed to be." 

Marjorie-Helen attributed her success in life to the Lord. 

"The Lord has been a very positive influence and force in my life." Semones said. "He is m\ stronghold. m> solid 
ock and he had been my leader in all of this. This is the Lord's calling and my calling as to where 1 am supposed to be." 

A fifth-level nursing student, Semones will graduate in May. 

"My future long-term goals are to go into home health care and become a home health nurse," Semones said, "I want 
3 key in on my both my assessment and technical skills and go into the hospitals working in the area of critical care, with 
opes of getting my masters degree and possibly becoming a nurse practitioner."

RUNNING THE SHOW IN THE NORTH 

The Shreveport Student Government Association, SSGA, is a productive, student-run organization of nursing 
students attending the Northwestern State University, Nursing Education Center in Shreveport. 

SSGA has been a involved in various community service projects, as well as acting as a student activities 
board for the Shreveport campus. 

Each semester, students on the Shreveport campus are assessed student activity fees during fee payment. 
These funds are placed in an account earmarked especially for the SSGA. 

With these funds, the SSGA Executive board, representatives from the clinical levels and general education 
classes, and faculty advisors find and research projects that yield the greatest benefit to the entire student body. 

Providing supplies and purchasing journals for the library, upgrades for the computer lab, lockers for student 
use, scantrons for all students and recognition ceremonies for associate & bachelor of science graduates are ways in 
which the SSGA's funds benefit the Shreveport campus.

Shreveport Student Government Association 



In addition, the SSGA funds are used for campus beautification projects, such as landscaping and safety 
ighting around campus, sponsorship of SNA/SGA members to attend state and national conventions and academic 
scholarships for members of the executive board and representatives. 

The SSGA has also funded many social events, including monthly luncheons for both students and faculty, 
in annual crawfish boil and end-of-semester parties. 

"This is a really active student government association," said Beth Hayes, associate director for student ser- 
/ices. "They [the SSGA] are trying to make college life on the Shreveport campus better for the students that come 
lere." 

According to Reneatha Player the association's activities help break up monotony after hours of studying 
md testing. 

"I enjoy what the SSGA does for the campus," Player said. 

Hayes feels that the students are having a positive effect of the campus. 

"The members are putting a lot of their time and effort into this organization," Hayes said. "And in return, 
hey are getting a lot back out of it."

SGA Sponsors Coloring Book Drive for LSI! 
Medical Center's Pediatric and Burn Unit 

Northwestern 's nursing program is known statewide for its well-educated and caring students. Their daily 
routines are quite different from that of the main campus population. 

Two to four days a week, their classroom is the local hospitals, where their skills are tested on actual 
patients who have real illnesses. The student nurses work with patients and their families offering their very best 
care. They hope to contribute to the well-being of each patient and offer comfort to their families. 

Last October, a third-level clinical group was working at Louisiana State University Medical Center 
Pediatric and Burn Unit, where Monica Johnson, Shreveport SGA president, observed the staff RN's rationing 
pages from a coloring book out to the children. 

State funds do not provide funding for colors or coloring books; therefore, the nurses often provide the 
items out of their own pockets. The children need a diversion to help take their minds off their pain and suffer- 
ing. 

Recognizing a need, the SSGA adopted the project of collecting coloring books and colors for the units. A 
contest was born. Each class tried to top the other. The prize, a pizza party for the winner, was funded by the 
SSGA. The student response far exceeded the SSGA's expectations. More than 1,400 coloring books and 1,500 



188

ags of colors were donated. 

Just before Christmas break, the books and colors 
>ere delivered to the patients in each of the units. SSGA 
dopted the book drive as an annual event. 

"The reward was just seeing the smiles on the chil- 
ren's faces reminded me what Christmas is all about," 
ohnson said. 



Billy Oberle 



Student Government Adopts a Street 

The members of the Shreveport Student Government 
Association are dedicated to both their school and their 
community. 

As a sign of their dedication to the city of 
Shreveport, the SSGA, in conjunction with the city of 
Shreveport, adopted an area of Line Avenue through the 
Shreveport Green Adopt-a- Street program. 

"We are a player in the city," Billy Oberle, SSGA 
treasurer, said. "And this way, we are allowed to contribute 
to the city by adopting an area of the city and keeping it 
clean." 




Scott Sanders, Monica Johnson, Carol Humphries and 
Shelly Hermes lend a hand in their community 
project through Shreveport Green. 





Because the students like to see their campus clean, they 
chose to adopt an area that was near the nursing school 
and included the nursing campus as well. 
"Our adoption of the block serves two purposes," Oberle 
said. "It not only allows us to keep our campus clean, but 
it also allows us to serve the city of Shreveport by keep- 
ing the city sidewalks and streets free of litter and debris." 
According to Oberle, the SSGA meets at least one week- 
end a month to help clean up the adopted block. 
The city of Shreveport supplies all volunteer groups w ith 
the necessary materials needed to do the clean up project, 
including garbage bags and safety vests. 
Oberle feels that this volunteer project has a positive 
effect on both the Shreveport campus and community. 
"We have had students call and ask us how they too can become involved with 
the Adopt-a-Block program from seeing our involvement in the program."" 
Oberle explained that there was a community awareness of the group's 
efforts, "students of the nursing school and members of the Shreveport com- 
munity will honk, wave or just offer a few words of thanks for the job we are 
doing."

Student Nurses Association 



The Student Nurses 'Association, SNA, is a 
student-run, non-profit, self-supporting organiza- 
tion which provides nursing students with an 
opportunity to become involved in a pre-profes- 
sional organization. 

SNA prepares students for future involve- 
ment in professional organizations such as the 
American Nurses 'Association. 

By encouraging students to interact in a 
professional environment during local meetings 
and state conventions, the organization teaches 
students how to be involved in such issues as leg- 
islative activities and representation of their pro- 
fession to consumers, institutions and other orga- 
nizations. 




The Northwestern State chapter had one of the largest 
groups in attendance at the LASN Convention in 

Monroe. 



SNA also promotes and encourages participation in community affairs and activities. The Shreveport chap- 
ter has been involved in such activities as the American Diabetes Association's Walktoberfest, the American Cancer 
Society's Walk for Life, the Adopt-a-Block program and a recent coloring book drive in which over 1,400 coloring 
books and crayons were collected at the Shreveport campus to benefit the Louisiana State I diversity Medical 
Center Pediatrics Department. 

Annual conventions provide students with the opportunity for collaboration with other colleagues in the 

nursing profession, learning experiences, and the chance to cam 
recognition for their achievements. 

In the past, the chapter has been awarded a Precious Metal 
Award for membership, as well as a Community Service Award in 
recognition of local community involvement. 

The chapter also boasts having Majorie-Helen Semones, 
the "1996 Louisiana Student Nurse of the Year," as one oj the offi- 
cers. Northwestern 's SXA also is listed in the top 25 chapters for 




membership in the I niied Suites.

Jim Esco 1996 



James Esco, the first instructor hired for the hospitality management & tourism program two 
years ago, died at age 53. Esco played a major role in establishing the HMT curriculum and 
launching enrollment of about 150 students into the program. Esco also helped establish and 
served as adviser to the Hospitality Management & Tourism Association on campus. 

"A lot of our success is a credit to Jim. He was an excellent promoter and recruiter for the 
program," Pat Pierson, department head of Family and Consumer Sciences, said. 

The experiences Esco brought into his classroom began at Louisiana College where he 
graduated in 1965 in mathematics. After college, he served as a Navy fighter pilot in Vietnam 
for four years. He was awarded a dozen medals for his flying in the war. 

Upon returning to the United States, Esco earned his MBA in Hotel, Restaurant and 
nstitutional Management from Michigan State University. 

Esco served on the Education Committee for Louisiana Travel Promotion Association, a state organization that edu- 
cated businesses and communities on the importance of tourism to the state. 

Throughout his 24-year career, Esco consulted companies in the restaurant, hotel and real estate businesses and taught 
it several colleges and universities. In the late '70s and '80s he owned and operated The Landing Restaurant in Gulfport. 
I^iss. 

Esco taught at the University of New Orleans, University of Southern Mississippi, Phillips Junior College in Gulfport 
d Fort Lauderdale College in Florida before coming to Northwestern. ^^^ m DeAdrian Alexander and Amy Wisdom

\n Conclusion... 

When we first came up with the 
idea for Juxtaposition, we knew we 
were searching for something 
fresh and fun.This book represents 
the change that Northwestern has 
seen the past year.Jhe o\d cliche is 
true— times, they are a changin'l 
We had a year of many firsts 
here. ..we scanned 95% of our pho- 
tos, used a different layout pro- 
gram and asked for help in locat- 
ing pictures from a bunch of peo- 
ple. You will find pages with lots of 
words and others that just contain 
pictures. Some of our ideas may 
seem a little warped at times along 
with our pictures, but we did this 
on purpose. College is not about 
perfect measurements and straight 
hoxes.lt is a Juxtapostion of acade- 
mics and a social life— where edu- 
cation and self-discovery overlap. 
So.it is our intention for our read- 
ers to have fun exploring the book 
we enjoyed putting together.

HOW IT WAS PRINTED: Volume 86 of the Northwestern State University Potpourri was printed by Taylor Publishing Company in 
Dallas by using offset lithography. The book was published in accordance with a 26-page contract enacted by university purchasing 
agent Cecial Knotts and Taylor representative Bill Oliver. All camera-ready pages were produced using Macintosh computers including 
the Quadra 950 system, Power Macintosh 6100, 8100, and 9500; QuarkXpress 3.31 for page layout; Microsoft Word 6.0.1 for typeset- 
ting; Omni Page 3.0 for text not completed in Microsoft Word; and Adobe Photoshop 3.0.4 for scanned photos and artwork. 

The layout for individual pages was designed using the Pagesetter program from Taylor Publishing. All other pages were designed in 
QuarkXpress and adjusted at the plant for sizing. 

All spot-color was designed in QuarkXpress using the Pantone Color Process and was submitted by the December deadline. Of the 304 
pages, seven were created using the four-color process. 

TYPOGRAPHY: Times New Roman was used as the body face and captions for all sections in point sizes of 12, 13 & 14. Page num- 
bers were 48 point University Doman with 14 point Klang MT used as content lines. Other fonts appearing in the publication: Brittanica 
Bold. Myriad Tilt, Parisian and Symbol. 

HOW MUCH IT COST: The 1997 Potpourri was printed on a total editorial budget of $60,000, and received no funding from the
